St Mark, Dalston

A huge low church building by Chester Cheston (1862-66) not far from Dalston Kingsland station. The interior is little altered and is  a stunning example of the more evangelical end of Victorian church design. The tower, completed by E.L.Blackburne in 1877-80, uniquely features an outdoor barometer. At the crossing are two stained glass angel windows in the roof.
