About

Church of England church in the Bishopsgate Without area of the City of London and existed as early as 1212. . The church was one of four in medieval London dedicated to Saint Botolph or Botwulf, a 7th-century East Anglian saint, each of which stood by one of the gates to the city. By the end of the 11th century Botolph was regarded as the patron saint of boundaries, and by extension of trade and travel.[4] The veneration of Botolph was most pronounced before the legend of St Christopher became popular amongst travellers. The church survived the Great Fire of London in 1666, and was rebuilt in 1724–29.
