St Antholin, Budge Row

St Antholin, Budge Row or St Antholin, Watling Street was a former church in the City of London, which was demolished in 1874. Nowadays it has resurrected as: St Anthony and St Silas, Nunhead .
The original church was first recorded in 1119. It is known to have been rebuilt in the 1400s. In 1666, the church was destroyed in the Great Fire of London. It was rebuilt in 1678-1684 by Sir Christopher Wren.
In 1829, the upper part of the spire was replaced and the portion taken down, with dragon's head weathervane, was sold for £5 to Robert Harrild, a printer, who had it erected on his property, Round Hill House in Sydenham, London SE26. It remains there today, now surrounded by modern town houses .
The church was demolished in 1874 as part of the Union of Benefices Act. That year many bodies were disinterred from the churchyard and reburied at Brookwood Cemetery.
On 1878-05-11, a successor church, St Antholin, Nunhead, was consecrated. On 1940-12-27, this church was gutted by incendiaries. On 1957-10-12, the rebuilt church was reconsecrated as St Anthony, Nunhead. In 2001, the church was united with St Silas, Peckham Rye when St Silas was demolished. In 2003, the church was rebuilt on the same site and dedicated to St Anthony and St Silas, Nunhead.
