Church of St Margaret :: Shared Description

The church was built by the neighbouring Augustinian Priory, for use by the people of the expanding town when the priory nave proved too small. This was about 1300, and St Margaret's would remain the town's most populous parish until well into the 19th century.
The fine tower is a 19th century expansion on a 15th century base. The transept is contemporary with the original tower.
The church sits on St Margaret's Plain, tucked into a corner of Christchurch Park.
