Notes on the Geography of The United Kingdom: London 5: Churches: Photo 3

world pictures The United Kingdom: London 5: Churches

Two miles and one bend of the Thames to the west, St. Martin-in-the Fields, at the northeast corner of Trafalgar Square, was completed three centuries later (1726) and became the model for churches across the British Empire. The plan, steeple on portico, was by James Gibbs, and the novelty of the design was not simply the bell tower atop the portico but the portico itself, the first English church to present a classical facade. Pevsner, anticipating Obi-Wan Kenobi, writes: "Integration this procedure can hardly be called." Near copies of the church can be seen on this website in the folders for Madras, Bombay, and Meerut (India), Georgetown (Malaysia), and Tashkent (Uzbekistan).
