On the church Website, there is no longer any picture of the church.  There was formerly an illustrated page about the bells, but it has disappeared; now the only mention seems to be on a Groups page (under Worship).

Where this work lies in the sequence of output of the Whitechapel bellfoundry, in this region and in the world.
