3. St Anne’s Limehouse, 1714-1730

St Anne’s Limehouse is one of Hawksmoor’s three churches in East London that, according to Elizabeth and Wayland Young, “achieve greatness through oddity.” The high gleaming tower served as a landmark for ships entering smoggy London’s docks. This view through the narrow streets to the West aspect of the tower reveals its spreading steps, unusual cylindrical porch and apparently free standing pillars – odd, but rather lovely!
