Here Mrs. Jordan played for the last time in England and here Miss Ellen Terry made her debut as Puck in 'A Midsummer Night's Dream.' The church in the background is St. Thomas', built in 1719 and restored in 1827. It has a prominent spire and tower and contains a handsome marble tablet to the memory of its founder, Thomas Player."
