From The Rev Geoffrey Kemble


Sir: In some private park (known to the City Fathers) there resides Wren's Temple Bar Gate, removed before my time from the Strand and marking an entrance into the City of London from the City of Westminster, prior to its removal. May I suggest that this splendid arch might be a focal part of the redevelopment of Paternoster Square? Being part of the City heritage, as well as an appropriate structure next to Wren's magnificent cathedral, the archway would be visually and historically welcome.

Yours sincerely,

Geoffrey Kemble Johnson
