Text from 'Historic Newport':

" ... the Mariner's Church was built in 1827, which for many succeeding years did excellent work in supplying the spiritual needs of the sailors visiting the port, as well as the bargemen employed on the canal. The church was the first of the kind in the whole of Great Britain."
