This is Ilford parish church. The nave is by James Savage 1829-31, the tower added by Arthur Ashpitel in 1865-66. The unmatched chancel was added 1919-20 by Edwin T. Dunn and a south chapel by J. Harold Gibbons 1928-29. The large paintings of the Stations of the Cross are by E.A. Fellowes-Prynne.
St Peter, Aldborough Road, Aldborough
St Barnabas, Homerton High Street
By Arthur Ashpitel 1845-1847, with the north aisle added in 1851. After WW2 damage, in 1944, it was rebuilt by William C. Lock with the chancel converted to ancillary rooms and reopened in 1958. The large paintings by Alfred Soord came from St Andrew, Bethnal Green, as were other furnishings now replaced. The WW1 memorial is carved into a nave pillar rather than a wall memorial. A full-height creche has been inserted into the southwest corner, but there are now plans to re-order the west end with a mezzanine and community facilities.
