#243 of 266 in Historic Sites in London
St Mary on Paddington Green is an Anglican church in the Parish of Little Venice, London and forms part of Paddington Green conservation area. It stands on the junction of Edgware Road and Harrow Road, overlooking Westway.
It is the third church on the site – once forming a centrepiece of the ancient Paddington and Lilestone villages. John Donne preached his first sermon in the original church, while William Hogarth was married in the second.
The current church is Georgian and was commissioned in 1788 and consecrated in 1791. Designed by John Plaw, and with a floorplan in the shape of a Greek Cross, it is built in yellow brick and dressed with white stone. It is Plaw's only confirmed surviving building in the UK, apart from Belle Isle on Windermere. A further building in Romford, known as The Round House, has been attributed to him. John Plaw later worked in Southampton before emigrating to Canada, where he designed several public and private buildings.
