St Alphege or St Alphage London Wall was a church originally dating from either 1068 or between 1108-25 AD, incorporating parts of the London Wall into its construction.
Closed by an Act of Parliament in the 16th century, it was demolished and replaced by the adjacent Priory Church (built before 1000 AD) for the nunnery of St Mary-within-Cripplegate which became the new parish church.
Damaged during an air raid in WW1, the church was scheduled for demolition in 1919. The nave was demolished in 1923, leaving only the tower and porch standing.
The tower was completely gutted by fire in 1940 and subsequently the upper levels removed during the development of the adjacent Barbican complex.
Today, all that remains of this ancient church are the remnants of the central tower with surviving arches.
