Church of St Mary the Virgin, Lewisham High Street, Lewisham SE13 - Lewisham

This unusual Georgian church, raised over a crypt, was completed in 1774 by George Gibson Jr; it replaced a medieval church and incorporated the original tower. The nave was re-modelled and the chancel added in 1882 by William Blomfield. The chancel was re-ordered in 1995-96. A nave re-roofing and drainage project was completed in 2016 with a grant from the National Lottery Heritage Fund. The congregation is actively exploring options for funding for a second phase of roofing repairs to the tower and chancel.
