Whitchurch, London

Whitchurch is a locality in Edgware, in the London Borough of Barnet, England. Historically part of Middlesex, the parish is also known as Little Stanmore. It is famous for its baroque church of St Lawrence, which houses an early eighteenth-century organ played by Handel and restored in the 1990s to its original condition. In the churchyard is a tombstone to William Powell, supposedly "The Harmonious Blacksmith" who inspired one of Handel's keyboard works.
