St Bartholomew, Westwood Hill, Sydenham

Famously shown in a painting by Pissarro. The church was designed by Lewis Vulliamy and built in 1827-32. In 1852 Edwin Nash added the chancel and in 1883 he widened the north aisle, most of which is now partitioned off as a hall area. The reredos was added by Henry Wilson in 1905.

St John the Evangelist, Beckenham Road, Penge

Next to the attractive Watermen’s Almshouses and sideways on the the street. This is church of 1850 by Edwin Nash and J.N. Round. The aisles and transepts were added in 1861 and 1866, respectively to designs by Nash. The north aisle is now divided off as a hall and the worship area re-orientated towards the north wall of the nave.
