300 years ago in late February 1723, the great man Sir Christopher Wren died in London after a long and fulfilled life. Most of us know him for his masterpiece St Paul's Cathedral which took over 35 years to re-build following the Great Fire of London. His legacy is SO much more. In my talk "Science, Domes and Spires", I reveal some of his radical scientific and mathematical ideas at a time of Civil War and Oliver Cromwell's rule. Wren co-founded the Royal Society, before moving to architecture with iconic buildings such as the Sheldonian Theatre in Oxford and the Hampton Court "extension", not to mention the fabulous city of London churches which feature in my city gardens walking tour.

Find out more about the events of the Wren300 initiative which celebrate his wonderful legacy,
