St Peter in the Forest, Woodford New Road, Walthamstow

East of Walthamstow at the southern edge of Epping Forest, semi-rural and in an attractive wild churchyard. It was designed in a Lombardic style by John Shaw junior in 1840. In 1854 changes were made by Charles Ainslie and it was extended westwards in 1887 by J.C. Lewis. World War 2 and a 1975 fire caused damage. The north wall was rebuilt in 1951. During 2019 and 2020 it has been under refurbishment as a church and community resource, the latest pictures show this project in September 2020 a couple of months before planned completion. The western narthex has been demolished as part of this work to expose the previous western front and new rooms created in a mezzanine at the western end as well as at ground floor level at that end.












St Dunstan in the West, Fleet Street
