Just behind the Shepherds Bush shopping centre, a church of 1879-86 by Arthur Blomfield. The west end at ground floor level has been divided off to create a hall.

St Saviour, Cobbold Road, Shepherds Bush

On the edge of Wendell Park at the western end of Shepherds Bush. The nave dates from 1888-89 by C.N. Tudor with the chancel added in 1894. A 1970 reordering by Norman Haines has meant that the western half of the nave is divided off as a nursery school and community centre, the sanctuary at the west end of the rump nave and the office in the sanctuary area which has gained an organ gallery.

St Augustine, Fulham Palace Road, Hammersmith (Roman Catholic)

Just south of the Hammersmith flyover, a church of 1915 by Robert L.Curtis. The painted Stations of the Cross were being re-lettered during my visit.

                    
   
   
   
   
   
   
   
   
   

St Thomas of Canterbury, Rylston Road, Fulham (Roman Catholic)

The church and churchyard are surrounded by houses built after the church. It is one of A.W.N. Pugin’s few London churches and dates from 1847-48.  A 2010 reordering has reinstated 19th century style decoration and seating and created an outer north passage beyond the north aisle.
