St Peter, Black Lion Lane, Hammersmith

Hammersmith’s oldest church in a pleasant, but for the Great West Road on one side, backwater at the west end of the town. It is by Edward Lapidge 1827-29 and was subject to a major restoration finished in 2016. The area under the gallery is divided off as a hall space.


St Mary, High Street, Putney

Right on the River Thames at the southern end of Putney bridge. The tower is medieval but the body of the church was rebuilt by Edward Lapidge in 1836-37, retaining a small amount of older work including the West Chantry Chapel of the early 16th century. The church was restored in 1980-2 by Ronald Sims after a severe arson attack in 1973. A large hall above a cafe have been added on the south side through which the church is now entered.
