St George in the East
St George in the East is an Anglican Church and one of six Hawksmoor churches in London, England, built from 1714 to 1729, with funding from the 1711 Act of Parliament. The name of the church was also the parish for the surrounding area, until subsumed into Metropolitan Borough of Stepney (and later the London Borough of Tower Hamlets).
The church was hit by a bomb during the Second World war Blitz on London's docklands in May 1941. The original interior was destroyed by the fire, but the walls and distinctive "pepper-pot" towers stayed up. In 1964 a modern church interior was constructed inside the existing walls, and a new flat built under each corner tower. The church still stands, and has an active congegration. Plans have been drawn up to develop the crypt into a performance venue.
It is located on Cannon Street Road, between The Highway and Cable Street, in the East End of London.
Behind the church lies St George's Gardens, the original cemetery, which was passed to Stepney Council to maintain as a public park in mid-Victorian times.
In 1836, the parish of St George in the East was constituted as a Poor Law parish under the Poor Law Amendment Act 1834.
It appeared in the 1980 film The Long Good Friday starring Bob Hoskins.
The church recently entered the news in March of 2008 after its Canon Michael Ainsworth, 57, was attacked and beaten in front of the church in an alleged faith-hate crime, one of several recent attacks upon the church and its leaders.
