More about this scene

The building of Charles Church started in 1640 after Charles I gave permission for another parish to be created. Construction was suspended in the Civil War and completed in 1657. It was dedicated to King Charles the Martyr in 1665. Once one of the finest post-Reformation Gothic churches in the country, Charles Church was gutted in the blitz and the ruins retained as a memorial to Plymouth's war dead.
