Anglican Church-Building in London - 1915-1945


This is a comprehensive, lavishly illustrated record of London's inter-war church-building activity. It shows the rich variety of Anglican churches erected for the capital's expanding population, some of them by famous and distinguished architects such as N.F. Cachmaille-Day, Sir Edward Maufe, Sir Charles Nicholson and A.E. Wiseman. This period of church-building is neither popular nor much discussed, yet the present study shows how many of the churches are of real importance and quality. It offers an illuminating introduction to the background of interwar church-building in the capital, an entry for every church erected between 1915 and 1945, a table of the architects responsible, and both interior and exterior photographs for almost every building.
