Paternoster SquareLinked to St Paul's, Paternoster Square is a significant wide open space in the City. A real sun trap in the summer, its surrounded by office blocks, bars and restaurants which lend themselves to outdoor drinking and dining in the warmer months. Although the square in its current form was created between 2000 and 2003, this space played a significant role in medieval times when the clergy of St Paul's Cathedral used to walk in procession along Paternoster Row, rosary beads in hand, reciting the Paternoster prayer. Within the square is the Paternoster Square Column, a 23 metre Corinthian column based on a design by Inigo Jones for the west front of St Paul's. Elisabeth Frink's 'The Shepherd and Sheep' sculpture may well hark back to the days when the square was a livestock market. Today, a market of a different sort takes place here - the global market of the London Stock Exchange.
