St Margaret's Church
Westminster Abbey
Visitors are welcome to this beautiful church. The present building, consecrated in 1523, is the third on the site. Since 1614 St Margaret's has been the church of the House of Commons. Windows commemorate Caxton and Milton, who worshipped here, and Raleigh, who is buried in front of the altar, under the glorious window made for King Henry VIII and Catherine of Aragon in c1520. After about nine hundred years of service as a parish church for the people of Westminster, St Margaret's was placed under the care of the Dean and Chapter of Westminster by Parliament in 1973. It is still in regular use for worship and for recitals of music.
In Memory of Ian & Cora Bullen 1973
