24.2.58 Church of St Mark's
A Commissioner's Church. 1825-28 by J.P. Gandy-Deering, the body of
the church remodelled by (Sir) Arthur Blomfield 1878. Stone front on
standard domestic plot width. A pure Greek Revival elevation taken up
entirely by a fine portico in antis with 2 Ionic columns and quoin
piers, their details taken from the Erechtheum, deep straight
entablature across front and above, set back from frontage plane, a
tall bell turret square on plan with splayed corner, pierced circular
louvres, surmounted by cross finial, the turret detailing a derivation
from the Tower of the Winds. The deep portico has 3 pure Greek
doorways going into small vestibules and beyond into a 9 compartment
"narthex" with four square piers with Grecian caps - a pronaos-like
space providing a suitable transition through the domestic plot to the
church lying behind. This was remodelled cleverly by Blomfield in
his Romanesque manner retaining the galleries but with entirely
Romanesque details, creating a chancel and opening up and elaborating
the roof structure over the nave, polychrome brickwork and scallop
capital stone columns. East window glass by N.H.J. Eastlake, etc.
