The former St Werburgh's Church
The former St Werburgh's Church
The tower of this church dates from 1610. The tower survived flooding in 1698 but a new Queen Anne style church was built, (of which only the chancel now survives), only to be replaced in 1893 by the present building to the designs of Sir Arthur Blomfield RA. Samuel Johnson, the famous man of letters, married Elizabeth Porter here on 9th July 1735.
The building now houses an oriental restaurant.
