Lynton Road

We stay in Lynton Road and visit a former place of worship at St Augustine's Church, Lynton Road. Although still standing, it is no longer regarded as a place of worship, but as a residential development.
Designed by Henry Jarvis, the first picture being the architect's impression of the Church and Tower that in fact was never built. The Church looks somewhat different to the original illustration.
In it's time it was the largest church in south London and could seat some 900 people. Built between 1875 and 1883, it was used for over 100 years before being made redundant by the Church of England in 1995. It was planned that the Church should be demolished but it was granted a Grade II Listed Building Status and was sold in 2005 for conversion to residential development and is now known as St Augustine's Court.
Henry Jarvis's full text of the building of 1875 can be found on

St Augustine's Court, Lynton Road, Bermondsey c 2010. It would be hard to disguise the fact that this 'court' was originally a church. In fact, St Augustine's was one of the largest churches in South London, built in 1875-1883. Nice old picture of the Church above posted by Fosney.
