St Andrew, Thornhill Square, Canonbury

By Francis B. Newman and John Johnson 1852-54 in the centre of the square. The interior has been divided with the north aisle as rooms and the south aisle as a hall and kitchen area. The nave and chancel have been re-ordered with chairs and few of the older furnishings left.

St Andrew, Romford

A backstreet church not too far west of the town centre. By John Johnson 1861-62. The east window was damaged by bombing so only the tracery lights are 19th century, the rest is from 1994 by Caroline Benyon.

St Edward the Confessor, Market Place, Romford

The town centre parish church is by John Johnson 1849-50 on the foundations of the medieval church. Several large monuments from that church are preserved within.  A very cared for interior featuring several modern stained glass windows at the west end.​

St Andrew, Hornchurch

High above Hornchurch town centre, a mainly medieval church, well lit with little stained glass. The south aisle, of brick, dates from 1802 and is likely by John Johnson.
