From the Peter Beales Classic Roses website (2007):
(Modern Shrub) We are delighted to introduce this rose on the request of The Worshipful Company of Gardeners. It is named for the church of the same name in Bishopsgate London. Largely destroyed by a bomb it is now restored and is to be a Centre for Peace and Reconciliation. The soft pink flowers are full and very old fashioned and have a wonderful strong fragrance.
