The church was built at first as a chapel in 1678 (not being
raised to parish church status until 1889) and was further enlarged
and beautified in 1682 and 1696. The glory of the interior is
the ornate plaster ceiling, the work of John Wetherell and Henry
Doogood. It is of a quality rarely seen outside London.
is suggested that the chapel received its dedication to off
near-by Puritan conventicles.
The church is open Monday- Saturday, 11am-3pm.
