The Greek Orthodox Community of Ss. Raphael, Nicholas and Irene, Hertford Road, Enfield EN3 5JE (formerly Hertford Road Cemetery Chapel)

The small cemetery chapel in Hertford Road cemetery, just behind the churchyard of St James, Enfield Wash. Before being used by the Greek Orthodox Church it was boarded up for many years. The cemetery was opened in 1880 so it seems likely that the chapel is of the same date.

St Paul, Church Hill, Winchmore Hill

Not far from the station, and rather hidden in trees, this is a very wide church of 1826-27 by John Davies. The original chancel was very short but a new larger one was added in 1889 along with vestries.

St Andrew, Chase Side, Southgate

Alongside the road, hiding a large ASDA superstore, north west of Southgate town centre. The church dates from 1903 and is by A.R. Barker with the sanctuary and north chapel added in 1916 by Barker and Kirk. There are striking modern stations of the Cross and a Triptych and several windows by local firm Cakebread Robey.


St Paul, Camlet Way, Hadley Wood

A small church of 1910 by Albert Kingwell in smart suburbia on the northern edge of London.
