St Giles-without-Cripplegate
stood outside the city wall, near the Cripplegate. The church is dedicated to St Giles, patron saint of beggars and cripples. It was one of the few medieval churches left in the City of London, having survived the Great Fire of 1666. It was destroyed during an air raid in the Blitz during the Second World War on the night of 29 December 1940, but it restored using the plans of the reconstruction of 1545.
