A wonderfully dramatic and eldgant discovery at the heart of the city. One of the most notable 18th century Church buildings, a rare example of 'English Baroque' style. Designed and built between 1709 and 1715 by the architect Thomas Archer, the building's success is due to a lightness of style and the use of clear lines. Note the Italianate domed tower, the huge clear windows and subtle ornamentation of internal features.

See Sir Edward Burne-Jones's four great Pre-Raphaelite stained-glass windows (worked in conjunction with William Morris).

See the other treasures too, including the 18th century Schwarbrick organ (rebuilt and extended).
