Designed by John Nash in golden-hued Bath stone, All Souls features a circular columned porch and distinctive needle-like spire, reminiscent of an ancient Greek temple. But the church was not very popular when completed in 1824 – a contemporary cartoon by George Cruikshank shows Nash rather painfully impaled on the spire through the bottom with the words ‘Nashional Taste!!!’ below it.
