Whitefriars Glass is a famous company believed to have been established in England in 1680. One of their main productions was stained glass windows, and St Paul’s is fortunate to have several Whitefriars windows which are identified by the ‘hidden’ monk – a small figure of a white friar that was used as the manufacturer’s secret trademark. Take a look in the Lady Chapel and see if you can find him!

Just when we all finally got the hang of the exit code for the Wilson’s carpark, the system has been upgraded and the code is no longer needed. A swipe card is now required to get out of the carpark after 9pm on weeknights or 10pm on Sundays. This means that if you are attending a midweek event you will need to get swiped out of the carpark by the event host as the gates close automatically at 9pm. We have the best negotiators and have made every effort to push the time out, but you can’t fight city hall!
