 St Magnus the Martyr is a Church of England church in Lower Thames Street, near London Bridge. Evidence suggests that a church has been on the site since the eleventh century, but the current baroque-style building was completed in 1687 to a design of Sir Christopher Wren after the Great Fire of London destroyed the previous church. St Magnus was the Earl of Orkney, who died in a political struggle in the early twelfth century. The church was dedicated to him officially by the Bishop of London in 1926.
