Nicholas Hawksmoor, a student of Christopher Wren's designed several chruches in London, notably the wonderful Christchurch Spitalfields and St-George-in-the-East in Shadwell. St. Anne's Limehouse's was his first. The best part, the steeple, is best seen from afar, either down by the river or, better still, up the narrow avenue of St. Anne's Passage leading east from Limehouse Cut to the church itself. I visited as part of a day-long walk that took me along the Regent's Canal from Camden, detouring up through Hackney and Clapton, back down past Limehouse Basin, and on through Wapping, Shadwell, and up to St. Katherine's Dock and Tower Bridge.

The interior of the church was gutted by fire in the 1850s, apparently, and was closed anyway on this Tuesday evening in July when I visited. The exterior is charming, however, and the ancient graveyard around it, beneath a cavernous plane-tree canopy, was very atmospheric. If you're anywhere around here, give it a look, and then visit St. George-in-the-East and Christchurch Spitalfields for real treats.

This is the church that the DLR passes in Limehouse. It is a Hawksmoor church with a good churchyard but unfortunately we couldn't get in when we visited.
