St John's Wood Church Reviews
A Georgian grade 2 listed 1814 of neo classical design by Thomas Hardwick. Originally had extensive cemetery that closed in 1855 and reopened as a public gardens 1886. Supposedly haunted sightings of a galloping highwayman and a victorian little girl. In 1823 Sir Charles Warwick Bampfylde of the distinguished Devonshire family, was shot on his doorstep in broad daylight by an ex employee J Morland, in a fit of jealousy (his wife still employed there). Bampfylde died after 12 days of the injury. Morland was buried alive with a stake through his stomach at the crossroads outside the front of the church. On the traffic Island infont of the church is a grade 2 listed bronze statue of a mounted St George killing a hapless dragon. A WW1 memorial, on a plinth of portland stone. Unveiled 1930. By the sculptor C L Hartnell. Became a parish in it's own right 1952. Paul and Linda McCartney had their marriage blessings here in 1969. In close proximity to Lord’s Cricket Ground, The Regent's Canal, London Central Mosque, Regent's Park, London Zoo and Lisson Grove. Nearest stations are St John's Wood and Marylebone.
Wonderful place well worth a 5 or 10 minute detour on your way to the cricket
