EXTERNAL IMAGES


St Margaret, Barking Church - As can be seen from the exterior, this is a very complete church. The entrance is now via a busy parish room on the South side, which is now a cafeteria/restaurant. It was heartening to see that it is so popular, as this undoubtedly allows the church to be kept open for visitors all day, in an area that would otherwise dictate the church being locked, like most town centres.
