Holy Trinity (former), Cloudesley Square, Islington ( was formerley also Celestial Church of Christ)

Built by Charles Barry 1826-29.  The interior was much changed and not in a great state of repair while under lease to the Celestial Church of Christ.  The lower exterior pictures are from September 2015 and the interiors from October 2016 while repair work was going on. The poor condition of the building led the Church of England to repossess the lease on the church in November 2017 and they are now seeking funding to carry out repairs.
