St Patrick, Hector Street, Plumstead (Roman Catholic)

In a rather constricted back street site around the corner from the original and still in use St Patrick’s chapel. Built in 1901 as the Church of England’s St Paul. It was bought by the Roman Catholic church and reopened in 1969 as St Patrick. It was the first Anglican church to pass to the Roman Catholic church, a move that required an Act of Parliament. The architect was William Basset-Smith

St Gabriel, Walm Lane, Cricklewood

Prominently sited on a street corner. The church dates from 1896-1903 and is by W. Bassett Smith and R.P. Day. Two impressive reredoses by Coates Carter and much glass by Powells and one by Martin Travers.


St Barnabas, Clapham Common Northside

The south side is open to the Common in this church of 1879 by W. Bassett Smith. The west end is now divided off into halls at ground and first floor level. This virtually hides the large west window.
