These two featured plaques are inside the porch so we had to use flash, hence the slightly odd photos.

Designed by Lewis Vulliamy, built in 1849 as the Anglican Church of All Saints. The western facade was reconstructed 1891-2 as a close copy of the Basilica of St Zeno of Verona. Now Listed grade II*.

1955 became the Russian Orthodox Cathedral of the Dormition of the Mother of God and All Saints, the cathedral of the Russian Orthodox Diocese of Sourozh.
