The church is of red brick, and has been built about 50 years, in the Venetian, ball room stile.  […]  As this was a new, dry church (for any place of damp gives me cold,) I was tempted to stay divine service  […]  [The church] is a neat, well-pew’d building; and was well fill’d with well-dress’d company, many of whom came in their coaches; and there was one sedan chair.The service open’d with a psalm, accompany’d by an organ, and the Te Deum, and―were chaunted; so these with two other psalms, gave me singing enough: as for the sermon, it had the merit of being short.  The bells are very tuneable; and they practise ringing.
