St. Olave's Church is dedicated to the patron saint of Norway, who fought against the Danes in 1014. The present church dates to 1450 (but not the tower, which is from 1732) and so survived the Great Fire of 1666. Haakon VII worshipped here during the Second World War. So had Pepys, a few years before the fire.
