St Mary Abbots Church was the ancient parish church of Kensington and until the early nineteenth century, the only one. The name was derived from the connection with the Abbey of Abingdon to which, at the beginning of the twelfth century, Godfrey de Vere bequested the church and surrounding land. This land, the central part of modern Kensington, became a separate manor of Abbots Kensington.
The architect was Sir George Gilbert Scott and the spire is reputed to be the tallest in London.
