    The design of the portico of this church may have been inspired by William and Henry William Inwood's Saint Pancras New Church, London (1819–22). The interior was based on Christopher Wren's Church of Saint Stephen's Walbrook, London (1672–79). The dome was destroyed by fire in 1839, and the building was demolished in 1864.
