St Swithun, Grovelands Road, Purley

On a hillside on the west side of the Brighton Road. There are two buildings here. On the higher ground is what is now the church hall built in 1929 and designed by S. Jupp. Below it is a church of 1954 designed By D.E. Nye and Partners. This is on the site of a church by N.F. Cachemaille-Day which was left incomplete at the outbreak of WW2 and largely demolished to enable this building to be constructed. A window and plaque commemorate two churches in Greenwich destroyed in the war and whose compensation sums paid for this building. The hall is shown in the last 2 images.

St Saviour, Middle Park Avenue, Eltham

One of the earliest Modern Movement church buildings dating from 1932-1933. It looms, bulky and grey over the surrounding streets of two storey houses. The architects were Welch, Lander and Nugent Cachemaile-Day. Inside there are blue slit windows above the altar and brick and concrete fittings including the reredos, pulpit and font. There is also a small side chapel with dalle de verre glass.

All Saints and St Stephen Former), Surrey Square, Walworth now Church of the Lord (Aldura)

A replacement for a bombed 19th-century church by N.F. Cachemaille-Day dating from 1959. It closed in 1975 and was taken on by the Church of the Lord in 1977.

St Philip and St Mark, Avondale Square, Bermondsey

On the edge of a square of 1960s housing, the church, which is one of N.F. Cachemaile-day’s last dating from 1963, replaced a church of 1875 destroyed in WW2, although the hall survived next door.


St Paul (Former), Dollis Hill Lane, Dollis Hill (now Maharashta Mandal London)

Like the nearby Roman Catholic church this building is high above the road. It was built in 1939 by N.F. Cachemaile_Day but was made redundant and from 1989 became a Hindu cultural centre. Since redundancy it has lost its east window.

St Paul, Corbins Lane, South Harrow
