From Thomas Maitland's 'History of London' c1755. St Leonard's, Shoreditch, is the ancient parish church of Shoreditch, often known simply as Shoreditch Church. The medieval church was rebuilt in Palladian style built by George Dance the Elder during 1736-1740, with a soaring steeple 192 feet tall in an imitation of Christopher Wren's magnificent steeple on St Mary-le-Bow in Cheapside. The church is mentioned in the line "When I grow rich, say the bells of Shoreditch" from the nursery rhyme Oranges and Lemons and is noted as being the resting place of many actors from the Tudor period.
