Paternoster Square

Paternoster Square is the little grid of streets immediately to the north of St Pauls Cathedral. Bombed out in the second world war, it was rebuilt in the late 1950s to a scheme by William Holford but the scheme quickly fell out of favour and by the late seventies was largely empty and unloved. Twenty tears of replanning, demolition and redevelopment came to fruition in 2003 when the new scheme was opened to the public. The new scheme comprises nine buildings set around the central square; three of the buildings are orifinal while the other six are brand new. It's now a lovely little precinct, popular both with those who work there and those who visit.
