Do You Know Your Ealing?
Did you guess correctly?
It is of course St Mary's Church
St Mary's Road
There has been a church building on this site for nearly a thousand years.
In the late 1720s,after years of neglect and deterioration, the medieval church was pulled down and a plain and simple Georgian building built, complete with a new peal of bells.
It is that new building, opened on Trinity Sunday 1740, which forms the core of what still stands here today.
