The joint dedication of St Anne's and St Agnes church was mentioned in a grant given by Westminster Abbey in 1467.
The original church was devastated during the Great Fire of London in 1666 and was the eleventh church built by Sir Christopher Wren and finished in 1680 (he built 49 churches and the new St Paul's Cathedral!)
The church was hit by a bomb during World War II and required extensive reconstruction.
The "Kettles and Pans" refer to the utensils sold by the coppersmiths who worked nearby.
