St Lawrence Church, Mereworth
St Lawrence Church, Mereworth
St Lawrence Church in Mereworth was rebuilt by the Earl of Westmorland in 1744-6. It is described by Pevsner as "the outstanding 18th century church in the county, in scale and ambition and in architectural interest. It is a thousand pities that the architect's name is unknown." He describes how the steeple was copied almost directly from St Martin-in-the-Fields, over a church after the manner of St Paul's, Covent Garden, and with the west porch close in design to St Paul's, Deptford.
