St Stephen, Canonbury Road, Canonbury

An eccentric exterior by Inwood and Clifton 1837-1839. The interior  was rebuilt by A Llewellyn-Smith within the old walls in 1957-58. The main feature is the martyrdom of St Stephen by Brian Thomas. The interior was being set up for filming when I visited.

By Francis B. Newman and John Johnson 1852-54 in the centre of the square. The interior has been divided with the north aisle as rooms and the south aisle as a hall and kitchen area. The nave and chancel have been re-ordered with chairs and few of the older furnishings left.
