This superbly restored church designed by Nicholas Hawksmoor (1731) is distinguished by its classical portico of Corinthian capitals and a steeple that was inspired by the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus and can be seen in William Hogarth's satirical painting Gin Lane . The statue at the top is of King George I in Roman dress.
