The building was consecrated in 1843 and the chancel with its rood screen and striking reredos was added in 1892 by the noted church architect George Frederick Bodley who also decorated St Luke's Chapel, which stands in the place of a 'Lady Chapel' to the south of the sanctuary; the Lady Chapel of St Paul's having been traditionally seen as being the church of St Mary's, Bourne Street.
