After 1250 AD London was rebuilt within the old Roman walls with parish churches and monastic establishments. The latter were largely destroyed at the Reformation of the 1530s.
The Great Fire of London in 1666 destroyed four fifths of the city and many of its churches. Those that were rebuilt in the following years were mostly designed by Sir Christopher Wren.
