Context

Administrative/Biographical history:

The parish of Holy Trinity was created from the parish of Saint Marylebone, Marylebone Road. Sir John Soane R.A. was the architect of this church, built in 1826-1827 in a Grecian architectural style. It was consecrated 31 May 1828. Having fallen into disuse by the 1930s it became a store in 1936 for Penguin Books. Penguin moved out in 1937 and the church was adapted as the headquarters of the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge [SPCK] where they remained until 2006. The church stands on a traffic island with Marylebone Road to the front and Albany Street and Osnaburgh Street to the sides.
