1831 description

'All Hallows Bread Street is situated at the corner of Bread Street and Watling Street, and takes its name from the same dedication as the last, and its situation, which is near to the ancient Bread Market of the city. It was originally a rectory of very ancient foundation, under the patronage of the Prior and Canons of Christ Church, Canterbury, but since the Reformation it was conveyed to the Archbishop of Canterbury, of which see, it is one of the thirteen peculiars within the city. The old church was destroyed by the great fire in 1666. The present edifice was erected from the designs of Sir Christopher Wren as a church in the united parishes of All Hallows, Bread Street, and St. John the Evangelist, the old church of which stood at the northeast of Friday Street and and Watling Street. The body of the church's plain, with dressings of the Tuscan order. It is 72 feet in length, 35 in breadth and 30 in height. It is an excellent specimen of the talents of Sir Christopher Wren in substantial and useful church building.'[20]
