Church of St Martin, Vicars Road, Gospel Oak, Camden NW5 - Camden

Designed by Edward Buckton Lamb and built 1864-6. The choir vestry, added in 1928, is now subdivided to allow wider community use. Eclectic Gothic style with Kentish ragstone walls, Bath stone dressings and tiled roofs, with a fine interior. Repairs to the tower stonework and restoration of the pinnacles were completed in 2014, grant-aided by the Heritage Lottery Fund. The church has a history of subsidence and has been underpinned, but there is more recent cracking to the choir vestry. The church is currently undergoing structural monitoring in order to determine the scope of repairs.
