St Paul’s Cathedral is not my favourite building in London by a long shot. Despite being a Londoner, I’ve never even been inside.
Something caught my eye this day. The light maybe.
Whenever I look at Sir Christopher Wren’s building, I’m always left in awe of the size of the original St Paul’s, burned down in the Great Fire of London 1666. The new building is 111m tall, but the old one reached 148m and was mostly made of wood!
Here’s a scrappy photoshop job to show how the old building would scale in modern London.
