I walked down to this church from the Chelsea Physic Garden, on a bit of an Atlas Obscura treasure hunt. I'd been promised a small chained library but alas, the church was entirely locked up and I got so close only to have to walk back to the station. The garden looked lovely and I so much wish I could have seen inside. Maybe hours could be more clearly posted.
The 1958 rebuild on original footprint with a small garden surround and exterior that's, well.. notably unremarkable Here it's all about the reconstructed historic interior. A meticulous and painstaking restoration of the original salvaged tombs, memorials and remnant fabric including some C16 stained glass panels. Quite remarkable but perhaps of more interest to ecclesiastical enthusiasts. The Hans Sloane memorial in the backyard featuring entwined Pythons and a colossal egg merits a peek. An active community here.
