Church of St John, Duncan Terrace, Islington N1 - Islington

Built in 1841 and designed by Joseph John Scoles. The towers flanking the gabled front elevation were added in 1877 designed by Francis W Tasker. The towers have copper clad pyramidal roofs which are in poor condition. Stonework has been painted in the past and repairs carried out in cementitious mortar, as has repointing of the brickwork. Netting has been applied to the central gable to collect fragments of failing pointing and spalled brick.
