The Free Church, St Ives

John Tarring (c.1805-1875)


Market Place, St Ives, Huntingdonshire

This Gothic-style church occupies a prominent position on Market Hill, and was given a tall spire to rival that of the nearby parish church. Much of the money for constructing it was donated by a wealthy local miller and nonconformist, Potto Brown, whose name is still well remembered in the area; the architect was a relative of his by marriage. Pomeroy's statue to Cromwell stands in the middle of the road outside the church.
