St Peter, Sumner Road, West Harrow

Dating from 1911-1913 and designed by G.F. Fellowes Prynne. The interior was subdivided by Ian Goldsmid in 1988-89 and it is not possible to get a real impression of the church interior. The main worship space is up a staircase inserted into the former baptistry, the chancel area is now a medical centre, otherwise, it is a complex of offices, rooms, kitchen, offices etc.

St Peter, Leigham Court Road, Streatham Hill

Imposingly sited almost at the top of a steep hill. The church is of 1870 by R.W. Drew, with the west end and baptistry by G.H. Fellowes-Prynne.

All Saints, Rosendale Road/Lovelace Road, West Dulwich

A huge unfinished church by G.H. Fellowes-Prynne of 1887-91 was badly damaged in WW2 and rebuilt by J.B.S. Comper. However it was burned out in 2000 and an impressive new church built in the walls, retaining the chancel but with much simplified furnishings. This dates from 2006 and was designed by Thomas F. Ford and Partners.
