This chapter examines the career of Hensley Henson as canon of Westminster Abbey. At Westminster, Henson inhabited a world a long way from Ilford and he delivered his sermons with some of England's most notable personalities, including the prime minister, the Archbishop of Canterbury, and the Chancellor of the Exchequer, under his pulpit. He also conducted fashionable and famous weddings as Rector of Saint Margaret's. In December 1912, the prime minister offered Henson the deanery of Durham.
