All Saints (former), Bute Avenue, Petersham

Built in 1907-08 by John Kelly, it is a huge Romanesque, very red basilica down a private road. It was never consecrated and regular services ended in the early 1960s, after that it was used only for weddings and occasional services until 1981. It was out of use by 1986 and sold for conversion to housing in 1996. I visited the interior in the early 1980s but have no pictures.

St Peter, Petersham Lane, Petersham

Down a narrow lane, off the main road in the pretty but traffic laden village of Petersham, south of Richmond. The chancel is 13th century, the rest of the church was rebuilt in the 16th century and a tower and transepts added in the 17th century.
