This is a fine old church and replaced an earlier church located nearer the centre of the city which was demolished in 1865. This church was almost demolished itself in the 1980s after it stopped being used in the 1970s. Instead, after some protest, the interior was renovated. However it still stands empty and is largely unused. The interior style is Arts and Crafts, and William Morris and his colleagues did some of the decoration, in particular the magnificent east window stained glass (the main window visible in the photo).
