Our Lady of Sorrows and St Bridget, Twickenham Road, Isleworth (Roman Catholic)

On a busy road junction at the end of the main street this is a church of 1907-09 by E. Doran Webb.


All Saints, Church Road, Isleworth

The old village parish church right by the River Thames. However only the 15th century tower and 1706 nave outer wall remain as the church was seriously damaged in arson attack in 1943. The church of 1967-70 by Michael Blee sits where the old chancel was, the nave being a courtyard with the aisle spaces filled with small rooms.

A suburban church of 1896-98 by Edward Monson


Sacred Heart, Quex Road, Kilburn (Roman Catholic)

A short way off the High Road this is a large church of 1879 by Pugin and Pugin. They added an eastward extension in 1898-99 and it was further extended this way in 1964-65 by F.G. Broadbent and Partners who also added the south transept and considerably widened the south aisle. The west porch was added in 1959 by Gordon and Gordon


St Cuthbert, Fordwych Road, West Hampstead

As close to Kilburn as West Hampstead. The church dates from 1987-88 and is by Jeremy A. Allen in replacement of its late 19th century predecessor. The bell comes from that earlier building.

Up the road from Parliament Hill Fields, this is a typical mid-century suburban church of 1852-53 designed by George Plunkett.


St Mary Magdalene, Munster Square, Euston

One of the earliest scholarly gothic revival churches. A short way west of Euston and north of Euston Road, it dates from 1849-52 and was designed by R.C. Carpenter, with the south aisle added in 1883-84 by his son R.H. Carpenter. The chancel decoration is by Daniel Bell and Richard Almond, the reredos was added by Charles Nicholson in 1935 and the rood by J.T. Micklethwaite. The great east window is by Hardman to Pugin designs, though much restored.
