The church was founded in about 1212 by Peter des Roches, Bishop of Winchester, as part of a complex of buildings serving as a hostel for pilgrims and a hospital for the sick and elderly. In 1540, after the Reformation, the building was used as an ammunition store, and it started to decay. Two of the most significant events in the history of the site that took place were the marriage of Charles II to Catherine of Braganza in 1662 and the grand receptions held in 1814 to celebrate the defeat of Napoleon, attended by the Prince Regent, the Emperor of Russia, the King of Prussia and his general Marshall Blücher, the great ally of Arthur Wellesley, first Duke of Wellington.

In 1941 a firebomb destroyed the nave.

Thank you for looking and to all those that voted on yesterdays picture, I've never had so many votes.
