In the ancient church on the site was a rectory, which being given by Henryde Wickenbroke to Balliol College, in 1294, directory ceased, and Richard Bishop of London, converted it into a vicarage, and the patronage still continues with the master and scholars of that college. It was destroyed by the great fire of 1666, and was rebuilt by Sir Christopher Wren, at the expense of the parishioners, assisted by a very liberal benefaction by Sir John Langham. The parish of St. Mary, Magdalene, Milk Street, was united into it by an act of parliament, and the church was finished in 1676. The present church is a handsome building of the Corinthian order, and the east end, next Guildhall Yard, is a composition of Corinthian columns, with niches and festoons of fruit. On the summit of the steeple, is a vane in the form of a gridiron, illustrative of St. Lawrence's martyrdom. The interior is rich, and beautifully decorated with elaborately modeled stucco ornaments, and has several monuments to celebrated persons. It is 81 feet long, 68 broad, and 48 high. This church is occasionally used Bo and Walbrook churches [which see, respectively, St. Mary le Bow&nbsp;and&nbsp;Stephen Walbrook]&nbsp;for corporation sermons.&nbsp;The advowson of this church is a vicarage, and in that of its sister parish of St. Mary Magdalene, Milk Street, is a rectory, and to the patronage is alternately with Baliol College and the dean and chapter of St. Paul's.
