The Great Fire of 1666 was a terrible event but had at least two positive consequences. The crowded, insanitary and plague-ridden wooden buildings of medieval London were destroyed. And Sir Christopher Wren was allowed to put his rebuilding plans into effect. Although his vision has been compromised by bombing and the lure of concrete and glass, elements of his City skyline persist.
From the Monument itself, a panorama of London takes in a range of older buildings - pubs, converted cafes, office blocks – where timber is an essential part of their construction. Wooden floors in particular are a timeless feature that adds class and beauty to a property. They are also hard-wearing and easy to maintain.

Did you know about Monument EC3?
The Monument rises above Fish Hill, close to where the Roman Bridge came ashore and where London began. The view from the top is awe inspiring. All around, a forest of spires and towers and turrets thrust upwards, striving for the light, a perfect metaphor for the struggle between God and Mammon.
The writer James Boswell came here in 1762 to climb the 311 steps to what was then the highest viewpoint in London. Half-way up he suffered a panic attack, but he persevered and made it to the top, where he found it ‘horrid to be so monstrous a way up in the air, so far above London and all its spires’. After rash of suicides the viewing platform was caged in 1842.
The Monument commemorates the Great Fire of London and is THE TALLEST ISOLATED STONE COLUMN IN THE WORLD, 202 ft. (62 m) high. It stands 202 ft. (62 m) away from where the Great Fire started, at a baker`s shop in Pudding Lane, on 2 September 1666. The fire raged for five days and destroyed four-fifths of the City, including St Paul`s Cathedral and 87 churches.
