Description: St Mary on Paddington Green is an Anglican church in the Parish of Little Venice.

John Donne preached his first sermon in the original church (early 17th century), while artist William Hogarth was married in the second in 1728. The current Georgian church was commissioned in 1788 and consecrated in 1791.

The church has several interesting monuments to some of the area's accomplished residents, including actress Sarah Siddons, sculptor Joseph Nollekens and lexicographer Peter Mark Roget.
