This stricture was abandoned in the nineteenth century. 46 Robert Herrick, The Poems of Robert Herrick, Grant Richards, London, 1902, 363. 32 S acred A rchitecture of L ondon Antiquarian interest in orientation was also present in the seventeenth century. After the Civil War, Silas Taylor (also known as Silas Domville),47 a captain in Cromwell’s army, devoted himself to antiquarianism that included investigations into church orientation. His military exploits in the Parliamentary forces included his unit’s pillaging and looting of the cathedral libraries at Hereford and Worcester.

Wren’s plan survives as a ‘what might have been’. There would have been two separate alignments of five churches, another line of three, two churches flanking the west front of St Paul’s, and two facing one another across a piazza. The effect on other cities in Great Britain if this plan had gone ahead can only be imagined. Despite the fame of his abortive plan, there have been few artistic attempts to reconstruct what Wren’s London would have looked like from the street. One impression was made by the twentieth century Baroque artist Rex Whistler (19051944), who painted a fanciful reconstruction of this London that never was as the drop curtain for productions of The Rake’s Progress by the Sadler’s Wells Ballet Company (designed in 1935 and last used in 1942, destroyed).

Along with Nicholas Hawksmoor, James Gibbs (1682-1754) was appointed as Surveyor to the 1711 Commissioners. 66 Close to the church, and on its axis, a tall column bearing a statue of Queen Anne was planned, but never constructed. Both Gibbs and Hawksmoor were admirers of such ‘right lines’ as they were called. Hawksmoor drew up plans for rebuilding Cambridge along right lines, with a major axis from King’s College Chapel to the gatehouse of Christ’s College, but it was never implemented. In London there is a line-of-sight along the Strand between St Mary-le-Strand and Wren’s church of St Clement Danes, which has a steeple by Gibbs.
