The Monument

The Monument

The Monument stands at the junction of Monument Street and Fish Street Hill in the City of London. It was built between 1671 and 1677 to commemorate the Great Fire of London and to celebrate the rebuilding of the City. The fire began in a bakers house in Pudding Lane on Sunday 2nd September 1666 and finally extinguished on Wednesday 5th September, after destroying the greater part of the City. Although there was little loss of life, the fire brought all activity to a halt, having consumed or severely damaged thousands of houses, hundreds of streets, the Citys gates, public buildings, churches and St. Pauls Cathedral. The only buildings to survive in part were those built of stone, like St. Pauls and the Guildhall. As part of the rebuilding, it was decided to erect a permanent memorial of the Great Fire near the place where it began. Sir Christopher Wren, the architect of St. Pauls cathedral, and his friend and colleague, Dr Robert Hooke, provided the design for a Doric Column.
