In narrow streets between the Thames and the station, this is Rotherhithe’s old parish church. The medieval church was replaced over the period 1714-1747 by this classical building attributed to John James and Lawrence Dowbiggin (Tower). A restoration was carried out in 1876 by William Butterfield. All the interior pictures are taken from the west end through glass as only the narthex is open.
Set well back from the road between Stanmore and harrow Weald. This church started as a chancel of 1842 designed by J.T. Harrison. Nave and aisles were added by William Butterfield in 1845. In 1889-92 he took down the north aisle and added a new gabled aisle and tower. A west gallery was added in the late fifties and the west window blocked. Removal of paint in 2013 uncovered a painted and tiled decorative scheme by Butterfield in the chancel.
The ancient parish church of Tottenham. The tower is 14th century with an 18th century top. The south porch is late 14th century, the south aisle late 15th century. The north aisle dates from 1816 and the east end of 1875-1777 by William Butterfield. The nave roof and much of the decoration is by Butterfield too.
