Listing Text


636-1/13/542 (South side)
27/09/72 Church of St Antholin


Church. 1877. By Ewan Christian, restored after war damage,
1957 by Laurence King. Red brick, Early English style with
lancet windows. Aisled. Of special interest because of reredos
from Wren's Church of St Antholin, Watling Street, demolished
in the 1870s.
INTERIOR: this timber structure, also damaged but skilfully
restored, has Fluted Corinthian half-columns supporting 3-bay
entablature with segmental pediments at either side. Centre
section has blank arches with gold angels' heads in spandrels
above decalogue; acanthus carving on panel beneath. Flanking
sections, with swags of carved fruit and flowers between
capitals, inscribed with the Lord's Prayer and the Creed.
Scrolled cresting probably replaced.
