Church of St Swithun, Hither Green Lane, Lewisham SE13 - Lewisham

This church was completed in 1893 to the designs of Ernest Newton, with an extension in 1905. A small mission church of 1884 survives at the east end. Built of red Wrotham brick, Bath stone is used for windows and dressings, and Portland stone for copings, all under slated roofs. A programme of repairs to windows and masonry at the west end was completed in 2015, grant-aided by the National Lottery Heritage Fund and Historic England. Further repairs are required.
