St Etheldreda's Church
The interior of St Etheldreda's Church, a Catholic church in Ely Place, London. One of the oldest Catholic churches in England, it was built as the chapel for the Bishop of Ely during the reign of Edward I (r. 1272–1307). Beginning in the sixteenth century, following the English Reformation and prohibition of Mass, it was used by a number of Anglican groups. The church was acquired by the Catholic Church, which had experienced a revival, in 1874. Today part of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Westminster, St Etheldreda's was classified as a Grade I listed building in 1951.Photograph: David Iliff
