Lonely Planet review

This church was erected by Nicholas Hawksmoor in 1729 and badly damaged in the Blitz of WWII. All that now remains is a shell enclosing a smaller modern core. It was closed for a time in the 1850s when the vicar introduced what was considered ‘Romish’ (Roman Catholic) liturgy.
