During the war the crypt in this church was used as an air raid shelter. 19 people were killed in 1940 when it sustained a direct hit. Damage was restricted to the organ which was destroyed and the floor and west window were damaged. Restoration work has been done. The church was built in 1894.
Behind the main altar is a painting of the Crucifixion . Thomas More was added to the name of the church in 1935 after his canonization. The church is near the house where he lived until he was hung at The Tower of London in 1535. There are half moon paintings of saints below the windows on the sides of the church. There is also a Pieta and a nice organ that replaced the one that was destroyed. This church is worth stopping and reflecting in, while marveling at its beauty.
