All Saints, Bark Hart Road, Orpington

Orpington parish church, but north east of the town centre in suburban roads. The old Saxon and Norman church has been made a chapel to a large 1957 church built at right angles and designed by Geddes Hyslop. The stumpy tower is the consequence of storm damage to its upper parts.
