Church of St Margaret of Antioch and attached railings, Woodhouse Road, Leyton E11 - Waltham Forest

A late C19 basilica style church by architect JT Newman commenced in 1892, replacing an iron mission church. The Lady Chapel was added in 1910. There are fine decorations and wall paintings internally. Only the north transept and aisle roofs remain to be repaired but this work is urgent as the paintings and parquet floor are being damaged by inadequate rainwater goods and drainage. The contemporary railings and adjacent halls are also in need of repair. The congregation is actively exploring options for funding the repairs.
