Holy Trinity, Hermon Hill, South Woodford

A huge unfinished church by James Fowler from 1886-87. There is a south arcade but no south aisle. Next door is a temporary tin church erected in 1882.


St Mary, High Road, South Woodford

From the street, one sees the east end of a church which was added in 1888-89 by W.O. Milne to a church by Charles Bacon from 1817. However, a fire in 1969 reduced the church to the tower and a shell. It was rebuilt in 1971-72 to designs by John Phillips to produce a wide, open space with a side chapel next to the former east end. Many monuments from the previous church (and its predecessor) survived the fire and are mounted around the walls.
