St. Dunstan's Church

The interior of this venerable structure has been completely gutted, and the wall leading to the burial ground razed to its foundations, so that the burial ground and the body of the church now form one common area. The square tower in Clifford's-Inn- passage being in substantial repair, and standing sufficiently back from the street, will be suffered to remain, and will form a tower of the new church. The wall in Fleet-street with the clock, &c., is also to be left standing till the new church is completed. The bodies buried in vaults under the church have been moved into a large vault which extends under Fleet-street, and which, as soon as it is ascertained that no more bodies remain to be moved, will be blocked up.
