Nicholas Hawksmoor is one of a number of distinguished architects who worked in the seventeenth century. Others included Sir Christopher Wren, Inigo Jones, and Sir John Vanbrugh. But while we remember Wren for St Paul’s Cathedral, Inigo Jones for the Banqueting House in Whitehall, and Vanbrugh for Blenheim Palace, Hawksmoor has no major work associated with him, and remains relatively unknown in comparison with his contemporaries.

This lavishly illustrated guide to his London churches, including the steeples he designed for Wren’s City Churches, also looks at Hawksmoor’s life and wider work and includes a guided tour around his churches from former Archdeacon of London David Meara.
