St Margaret Pattens

Categories: Religion

The church gets its name from the pattens (clog-like shoes) made and sold in the lane beside the church. An early building was pulled down and reconstructed in 1538. After the Great Fire it was again rebuilt, by Wren 1686 - 1688. Damaged during WW2 it was restored in 1955-56.
