All Saints on Pilgrim Street. An 18th century replacement of a medieval church, it's unique in England, being the only church on an elliptical plan. Currently undergoing restoration, the church is listed as grade I. De-consecrated in 1961, the building has had a number of uses since then, but as this news item explains, it will return to religious use in October 2019 as an Evangelical Presbyterian Church.
