David Mander

A sturdy brown temple with a tower floating over it - or 'the ugliest church in Christendom, save one', St John-at-Hackney was consecrated in 1797 and has attracted praise and criticism ever since.

This book traces the history of the present church, and the original St ]ohn's church which it replaced, and includes a visitors' guide to the building and its monuments.
