St Antony, Nunhead Lane, Nunhead now The Lighthouse Cathedral

Built as St Antholin by Ewan Christian in 1878. It was badly damaged in WW2 and rebuilt with a shortened nave and new west end by Laurence King in 1957-1958 at which point it became St Antony. It was made redundant in 2001 and sold to a pentecostal church and renamed The Lighthouse Cathedral.


St Mary, Perivale

Redundant in 1972 and converted to a small arts venue run by a friends group in 1981, it remains consecrated. The chancel dates from the 12th century, the wooden tower from the 16th. There was much restoration by Laurence King in 1964.
