The medieval parish church of Ruislip in the town centre. At its heart is a 13th century building, with a 15th century tower and a south aisle, chapel and chancel rebuilt or added in the 15th century. Ewan Christian restored the chancel in 1869 and Gilbert Scott the nave in 1886. There is much 19th century glass, medieval wall paintings and big collection of hatchments.
A medieval church that has undergone many restorations, the last being 1875-76 by Ewan Christian and A. Blomfield , 1883 (tower top) by T. Chatfield Clarke and 1992 after IRA bombing blew out much glass. In 2012 it was reordered with new flooring and westward rooms as it is now used as a meeting venue by the St Helen’s Bishopsgate organisation.
1888-89 by Ewan Christian to serve the expanding suburbs and provide a higher church alternative to many other Islington churches. The current church hall was a Mission Church that was moved backwards after the church was built (last two images). There were more ancillary buildings around the east end but several have now gone.
