Church of St Silas, Penton Street, Islington N1 - Islington

Built in 1860, designed by SS Teulon, completed in 1863 by EP Loftus Brock and chancel added in 1884 by W White. The roofs were re-slated in 2010, the south slope with photovoltaic tiles to match the slates in size and colour, along with some associated high level stone repairs. Structural repairs to the west end, where there was significant cracking, were completed in 2016, grant-aided by the Heritage Lottery Fund. Further stone repairs are required.
