St Luke, Chandler Way, North Peckham
Cathedral of St George, St George’s Road, Southwark (Roman Catholic)
The original building was by A.W.N. Pugin and dated from 1841-48, but was under-financed and never completed to Pugin’s vision. However WW2 brought severe damage leaving only the aisle walls and east end, the rest is a post-war rebuilding by Romilly Craze from 1953 to 1966. Some Pugin fittings survive in the Blessed Sacrament chapel and the Knill chantry is by E.W. Pugin. Craze’s design added a clerestory and a new Lady Chapel.
All Saints, Waltham Avenue, Queensbury
St Cuthbert, North Wembley, Carlton Avenue West
St Mary and Archangel Michael, Cranbourne Gardens, Temple Fortune (Coptic)
In suburbia north of the centre of Golders Green. This was built as St Barnabas C of E church in 1915 by J.S. Alder. The chancel and Lady chapel were added in 1932-34 by Ernest Shearman. The nave was rebuilt in 1962 by Romilly B. Craze after war damage. It became a Coptic church in 1996 and this was when the west porch was added. The interior shots appear rather murky owing to the amount of incense coming from a service in the lady Chapel.
St Thomas, Kensal Road, Kensal Town
St Mary Abbots, Kensington
Replacing the old church, a large building of 1868-72 by George Gilbert Scott, the tower and spire added 1872-79. The church was bombed in WW2 and received a new ceiling by Romilly Craze in 1955, much of the glass by Clayton & Bell survived although the backgrounds in the aisles and clerestory have been removed.
St Thomas, Prince George Avenue, Oakwood
In quiet suburbia, a church of 1939 by Milner & Craze with the west end and tower added in 1965 by William Mulvey. The side chapel window is by Alfred Fisher.
