About this Event
SAVE Britain’s Heritage is delighted to announce this year's lecture by Simon Jenkins entitled:

Who Guards London?

Throughout history Londoners have argued about the growth and appearance of their city. Rarely were they heard, at least until the 1970s. Then, with the conservation movement, a revolution occurred. Who is protecting London's historic buildings; the Mayor, London boroughs, government ministers, MPs or the voluntary movement? Hear Sir Simon Jenkins on the perennial question of who guards the guardians.

Sir Simon Jenkins is a journalist and author. He writes regularly for the Guardian and London Evening Standard and was editor for The Times. Simon is former chairman of the National Trust and a founding Trustee of SAVE Britain's Heritage. His recent books include 'England's Thousand Best Churches,' 'A Short History of England' and 'A Short History of London: The Creation of a World Capital' will be published in October 2019.

St Botolph without Bishopsgate was completed in 1725 after the original church fell into disrepair. The present church was designed by James Gold under the supervision of George Dance.
