Event description

Description

If it wasn't for its close, almost too close, proximity to Westminster Abbey, the 11th century church of St Margaret (of Antioch), which is bursting with history, would be a major attraction in its own right. It has seen numerous marriages including Pepys, Milton and Churchill and is the burial ground of Walter Raleigh, William Caxton and a host of regicides. It was built to provide locals with a place to pray where they would not disturb the Benedictine monks in the Abbey and has twice resisted attempts to pull it down.
