Holy Trinity, Maldon Road/Manor Road, Wallington

By Habershon and Brock dating from 1867. On my original visit in March 2015 the interior was inaccessible owing to a major restoration and reordering which was finished in November 2015. On the north side of the church, there is a large atrium linking the church through its north wall to a complex of halls and other rooms. The final two images show the church under restoration in 2015.

St Mary, Church Road, Beddington

Attractively sited in a large churchyard next to Beddington Park and Carew Manor. Much of it dates from the 14th century with an 1867-69 restoration by Joseph Clarke, with the dormers added in 1907 bu H.P. Burke-Downing. Apart from the new north aisle, added by Clarke, most walls are covered in 19th-century paintings and stencilling. There is an organ case with early William Morris decoration and a huge doom altarpiece, now at the west end of the north aisle, by Clayton and Bell. There are a number of misericords in the choir stalls.
