St Mary's Twickenham

St_Mary's_Twickenham

The first record of a vicar of Twickenham was in the early thirteenth century, although the original St Mary the Virgin Church church pre-dates this earliest record. All that remains of the mediaeval church is the tower, constructed of Kentish Rag. The remainder of the Rag Stone building collapsed 9th April 1713, the result of neglect and the digging of vaults.

Sir Godfrey Kneller of Whitton, the churchwarden and court painter, initiated the red brick nave and interior to the plans of John James of Greenwich - a classic example of the architecture of the period, paid for by a subscription among local people.
