St Barnabas, Shacklewell Row, Dalston

One of Charles Reilly’s few buildings – this church dates from 1909-11. The screen was added in 1935 to designs by Tyson Smith. It is part of an east end mission created by Merchant Taylor’s School and lies hidden behind the school house. Both have been brought back into use by an evangelical plant who have restored the school, the church is little changed.

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.
