Church of St Chad, Dunloe Street, Hackney E2 - Hackney

Church by Victorian Gothicist architect James Brooks, completed in 1869 to provide for rapidly expanding but poor suburbs. The adjacent vicarage dates from 1874. The church is high and lofty, with plain detailing in brick and contrasting Bath stone dressings under slated roofs. The vicarage, transept roofs and north nave brickwork were repaired in the late C20. More repairs are needed to brickwork and rainwater goods, and the timber bellcote above the crossing is in urgent need of assessment and repair. The church is actively seeking funding.
