The oldest building in Southampton and dates from 1070 when the Norman town was being built. Of the parish churches in the centre of the town, this was the only one to escape destruction in 1940. Nearly 45,000 buildings were damaged or destroyed in World War II, with most of the city's High Street being hit. There were reports that the glow of the firestorm of Southampton burning could be seen from as far away as Cherbourg on the coast of France.
