By the late 13th century this church had become known as St Dunstan's in the West to differentiate it from St Dunstan's near the Tower of London. In 1666 it narrowly escaped the Great Fire, and in the following year Samuel Pepys attended a sermon there. The double-faced clock was erected in 1671 and became a notable London sight mentioned in several novels. The church shown here was eventually rebuilt in the 19th century.
