All Saints, Caledonian Road/Carnegie Street, Islington
Church on the Corner, Barnsbury Road

St James, Chillingworth Road, Lower Holloway
A Disused church of 1837-38 by Inwood and Clifton. The tower was added in 1850. From 1980 to 1982 it was converted into commercial premises and is currently a co-working space. An image of its different colour in 2013 is at the end of this collection.
St James, Prebend Street, Islington
Away from the main roads through Islington this church replaced the Clothworker’s Guild City of London Lambe’s Chapel. Some Flemish glass and the figure of William Lambe were transferred here when this building was constructed by F.W. Porter in 1873-75. In the last couple of years there has been a reordering that has exposed the tiled work in the apse.
St Peter, Islington
Holy Trinity (former), Cloudesley Square, Islington (was formerly also Celestial Church of Christ)
Built by Charles Barry 1826-29. The interior was much changed and not in a great state of repair while under lease to the Celestial Church of Christ. The lower exterior pictures are from September 2015 and the interiors from October 2016 while repair work was going on. The poor condition of the building led the Church of England to repossess the lease on the church in November 2017 and they are now seeking funding to carry out repairs. The first three images show its state in September 2022.
Our Lady of Czestochowa and St Casimir, Devonia Road, Islington (Roman Catholic)
