St. Andrew Holborn was a parish church in Farringdon Without Ward, located on Holborn street between Fetter Lane and Shoe Lane. It is located on the Agas map, labelled as S. Andrews.
According to Stow, there was a grammar school, as well a monument dedicated to Lord Thomas Wriothesley either within or nearby St. Andrew Holborn (Stow). The church was first mentioned in Charter of King Edgar in 951 (Harben; BHO). The medieval church was rebuilt in 1632 and managed to escape damage caused by the Great Fire. Christopher Wren rebuilt the church in 1684 making it the largest of his parish churches, measuring 32 by 19 meters and costing £9,000 (Weinreb and Hibbert 741).
St. Andrew Holborn is currently an active church in London and is still housed in its original location.
