English St Mary Abbots

St Mary Abbots is a church located on Kensington High Street and the corner of Kensington Church Street in London W8.

The present church structure was built in 1872 to the designs of Sir George Gilbert Scott, who combined neo-Gothic and early-English styles. This edifice remains noted for having the tallest spire in London and is the latest in a series on the site since the beginning of the 12th century.

The church, and its railings, are listed at Grade II* on the National Heritage List for England.

English St Mary Abbots

Although there has been a parish church on the site since the 13th century, the present building dates only from 1872. It was designed by Sir George Gilbert Scott (perhaps most famous for St Pancras station and hotel), who was a parishioner, and it has the tallest church spire in London. Imposing and formidable, without necessarily being beautiful, it is nonetheless Grade II* listed.
