Context

Administrative/Biographical history:

There has been a church on the site since at least the tenth century, when the original Saxon church was rebuilt by order of Dunstan, the Bishop of London, who was canonised in 1029. The church was renamed after him. The present church dates mostly to an enlargement and restoration carried out in the fifteenth century. The church was the only one in Stepney for many years, until a whitewashed chapel was constructed at Whitechapel in the thirteenth century, after which many more churches were built in the area and the parish of Saint Dunstan decreased in size.
