All Saints, Margaret Street

In honor of this year's London Festival of Architecture (which begins this Saturday) the neighborhood blog Fitzrovia News pays tribute to what is certainly their finest piece of architecture, William Butterfield's All Saints, Margaret Street. Among the interesting facts to be learned in this thorough description is that the church's particular brick cost more than stone would have at the time. This is a good excuse to update the building database entry on All Saints, Margaret Street and start to finally add the photos from my trip to England which was now over a year ago. Unfortunately, the church was closed for interior renovations when I visited, so I only have a photo of the courtyard with the priest running off to sound the bells for midday prayers and this one of the steeple.
