This beautiful church sits on the grounds of Westminster Abbey and was consecrated in 1523.  It’s also been the church of the House of Commons since 1614. The church is still used regularly for worship and musical recitals.  There are five photos in this post, so thank you very much for viewing them all.  You’ll know you’re at the end when you see the little magpie!
