St. Mary Abchurch

I don’t think I had ever been to St. Mary Abchurch, one of the best preserved Wren interiors, very atmospheric with its large dome, painted by a parishioner, William Snow, who was paid £178 in 1708:-

A very plain exterior, with carved heads, presumably by Christopher Kempster, the mason:-

The ‘olter pees’ is by Grinling Gibbons himself:-

There is other good woodwork by William Emmett:-

Altogether highly atmospheric:-
