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.
