St Leonard’s Shoreditch

You come across many strange thing while researching family history. I love the BBC series “Rev” about an anglican minister who moves from a rural parish to the dysfunctional inner London parish of St Saviour in the Marshes. All the church scences were filmed at St Leonard’s Church, Shoreditch the parish church of my 2xgreat grandmother’s family, Margaret (nee Crosby) Henderson – so I have had both an inside an outside look at where they used to worship in the early 1800’s thanks to the BBC!
