Church of St Stephen, Westbourne Park Road, Westminster W2 - Westminster, City of

Built in 1856, designed by F & H Francis. The apse was added in 1900. Externally the building is of coursed ragstone with limestone dressings and slate roofs. The spire was taken down after World War II. The church became near derelict and underwent major repair in 1995. Progressive structural instability is exhibited in extensive cracking and splitting of stone in the nave arcading. Works are currently underway to address the structural issues and to repair the cracked and damaged stonework, grant-aided by the Heritage Lottery Fund, and due to complete in 2018.
