In the grounds of Barking Abbey (see the gatehouse tower below) at one end of Barking town centre. Originally a chapel it became a parish church around 1300. It is quite a large medieval church with both an inner and outer north aisle. The font is 17th century with a cover from the 19th century that was attractively decorated in the 20th century. There were a couple of restorations by C.J. Dawson around the turn of the 20th-century. There are many impressive 17th and 18th century monuments all around the church.

  1. […] Elizabeth lived for 56 years after her husband’s death. She died on May 13th, 1835, at the age of 93. Sadly for the world, she burned all her late husband’s letters and papers. What an extraordinary woman she must have been.
