St Martin Vintry

St Martin Vintry
Denomination Roman Catholic, Anglican

St Martin Vintry was a parish church in the Vintry ward of the City of London, England. It was destroyed in the Great Fire of London in 1666 and never rebuilt.[1]


The church stood at what is now the junction of Queen Street and Upper Thames Street just north of Southwark Bridge.[2] It was rebuilt in 1306, the choir at the cost of Queen Margaret. The Vintners Company had an Altar in the church dedicated to St. Martin, who was their patron saint.[3]

St Martin Vintry was one of 86 parish churches destroyed in the Great Fire of London. In 1670, a Rebuilding Act was passed and a committee set up under the stewardship of Sir Christopher Wren to decide which would be rebuilt.[4] Fifty-one were chosen, but St Martin Vintry was not among them.[5] Instead its parish was united with that of St Michael Paternoster Royal.
