Summary Description

This is quite a large Victorian village church of grey stone, the defining features being its relative simplicity with lancets, tall narrow dimensions and a slim south-west steeple. This gives it considerable vertical emphasis and landscape impact in the flat wetland landscape of Foulness Island, and indeed it was meant to function as a landmark. The church was built as a parish church in 1849-52 to the designs of William Hambley of London.
