Church of St Jude, Central Square, Hendon NW11 - Barnet

Designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens, St Jude's was consecrated in 1911 with the west end finally completed in 1935. There are frescoes throughout by Walter Starmer, dating from 1919-30. Built in grey and red brick with stone dressings and clay tiled roofs. It has a tall open tower and spire. The church has damp issues including the crypt, which is prone to flooding. There is cracking evident internally and some areas of the frescoes are suffering from salt damage. The heating system requires overhauling. The congregation is actively exploring possible sources of funding.
