Additional notes

Original plans by Sir Walter Tapper included a tower on the south side, however rising costs and dwindling congregations meant this was never completed. In 1978 the church was declared redundant and closed. In 1992 a major fire made preserving the building unlikely and it was demolished in 1995.

Search churches

You can look for churches using the search boxes or on the pins on the map. Each entry gives the architect and location, and the icons on the left show listing status. Where available, we have included links to more detailed online information about the building, such as the English Heritage listing description. We hope you will find some of your own favourites here and discover some new buildings too.
