Built as a Congregational Church (latterly United Reformed Church), it closed in 1977 and was sold to the Roman Catholic Church and dedicated in 1978. It had opened in 1883 to designs by Searle and Hayes.
Not far from Clapham South station near Balham Hill. It dates from 1883-90 and is by Arthur Cawston. It was set up for a toddler group when I visited, and the west end was inaccessible due to heating work being undertaken.
As close to Balham as much as Battersea. It stands out from some way off, above the sea of suburban villas between the two. It was designed by F.W. Hunt and built 1883-89 with the chancel and tower added in 1892 and the baptistery in 1899. The interior is a fine collection of contemporary fittings, including very early electric light fittings of 1903. The Lady chapel was refitted by Martin Travers in 1924-27, he also designed the font cover.. Most of the glass is by Powells.
On the corner of Merton Road, some way east of the underground station. This is a church of 1906-08 by C. Ford Whitcombe. The coloured glass gives the interior a very odd green wash effect on a sunny day.
A large street corner church in suburbia north of Southfields underground station. The church is by E.W. Mountford of 1896-97, with the east end added in 1905. The north side is masked by a large extension containing a cafe.
The town centre parish church. The tower is of 1630, extended with an extra story in 1841. The church is a rebuilding of 1779-80 by William Jupp, with a chancel and nave roof added by E.W. Mountford in 1899-1900.
