Loyd Grossman on London’s original starchitect

Sir Christopher Wren is called the "first modern architect" and designed St Paul’s Cathedral - how does his legacy shape 21st Century London?

We speak to former Through the Keyhole and MasterChef star Loyd Grossman, a heritage campaigner and chairman of the City’s of London's Gresham College, plus archaeologist John Darlington, who’s executive director of World Monuments Fund Britain.

Three hundred years after Wren's death, this special episode of the Leader podcast is recorded at the Square Mile church he also designed, that you could describe as “little St Paul’s”. 

St Stephen Walbrook, which is tucked behind Bank station, has a 'miniature' dome sharing features with its cathedral cousin nearly four times the size.
