A little gem indeed: the architecture, the history, the windows (on a sunny day the choir windows are mesmerising! Look out for the angels quite unusual) And the service too is top quality either weekdays or Sunday.
The place is very quite and warm. It has a 1:00pm mass during the weekdays which is good for working faithful Catholics. The entrance is not that noticeable as it is facing parallel with the road, new to the place won’t find it easily but just looked to the left and you will find the small door which lead to narrow hallway. Very solemn place of worship.

One of 15 church bells in the longer version of nursery rhyme “Oranges & Lemons”. “Bullseyes and Targets say the Bells of St. Margaret's.”
Beautiful church, atypical of Wren designs but not in the Top Ten of Square mile churches

Brooding, somewhat squat, but beautiful in its way. There has been a church here for 1000 years. Burial place of James Newton, who wrote a little tune called 'Amazing Grace'.
A delicately imposing and elegant masterpiece by Hawksmoor. Design seems to loom broodingly in graceful bulk. Church seems to remain fairly active, being open for community purposes, but the draw here is the perfection of its design. The only complaint is the incessant traffic often blocking the church from different vantages.
