St Andrew UndershaftThis historic church in the late Perpendicular Gothic style stands comparatively small in the shadow of the Gherkin (or Swiss RE) building but its history is long standing. A church has stood on this site as far back as Saxon times. Known by several different names, the current title, with Undershaft attached, appeared in the 15th century - a reference to an annual custom that saw a maypole raised in the nearby street Cornhill, described by Chaucer as the "great shaft of Cornehill". Inside there are monuments, memorials and brasses commemorating significant people from the area including Sir Thomas Offley and his family, Lord Mayor in 1556, and Sir Hugh Hammersley, who occupied the same position in 1627. Though not normally open to the public, viewings can be arranged by telephoning the nearby St Helen's who frequently use the church for meetings. Special services are also held from time to time.
