St Thomas of Canterbury, Rylston Road, Fulham (Roman Catholic)

The church and churchyard are surrounded by houses built after the church. It is one of A.W.N. Pugin’s few London churches and dates from 1847-48.  A 2010 reordering has reinstated 19th century style decoration and seating and created an outer north passage beyond the north aisle.

All Saints, Church Gate, Fulham

At the north end of Putney Bridge facing across to Putney Parish Church, this is the old parish church of Fulham on the edge of Bishop’s Park. The tower dates from 1440 but the rest was rebuilt in 1880-81 by Arthur Blomfield. Inside there is a large collection of monuments from before the rebuilding and much, mainly Heaton, Butler and Bayne, glass. Some medieval pieces remain together with an older Wailes window and a later one by Margaret H.E. Rope.

   
   
 
   
   
   
   
   
   
   
   
 
   
   
   
   
   
   
   
   
 

Christ Church, Studdridge Street, Fulham

Closing off the view looking south down Quarrendon Street, this is a church of 1902-03 by J.E.K Cutts and J.P. Cutts. The west end has been divided off vertically and horizontally for halls, kitchens and a store-room for the food bank. The former chancel screen is now at the east end. Arts and Crafts glass by Karl Parsons is now hidden away in the store-room at the west end. There are also several later Morris and Co windows.
