It was built in the 19th century, and used, at that time, among others, by many Irish workers who had been in the nearby docks. Next is the Tower of London, a place of execution of many English martyrs, especially during the reigns of Enrique VIII and his son Eduardo VI. Gothic style, the main facade has two arched doors, whose Gables include mosaics depicting the Holy Tomás Moro and San Juan Fisher, i.e., Sir Thomas More. and John Fisher, Bishop of Winchester (beheaded by order of Enrique VIII). The interior has two levels of arcades, one of arches campanel and other pointed arches on cylindrical columns. The main altar has a screen of three arches and a beautiful window in the background. Although I think that the front would look much more after a good cleaning, for me it was a reassuring visit, especially because of its symbolism, in Anglican ground.
A beautiful old Catholic church, dedicated to the English Martyrs and situated a few minutes walk from the Tower of London where they gave their lives. The church is open most weekday mornings for personal prayer or just to sit and be quiet, and there is a quick but reverent Mass at 1pm, ideal for City workers on their lunchbreak (and surprisingly well-attended for a weekday Mass).
It's an historic church. I'm afraid I know very little of it's history.
