Church of St Leonard, Streatham High Road, Streatham SW16 - Lambeth

Designed by J Parkin built in 1841 with chancel added in 1862; designed by Benjamin Ferrey. The lower part of the tower and the spiral stair up to the belfry date from the mid-C14. The church was burnt out in 1975, repaired and re-ordered by Douglas Feast. In 2015 the north aisle and north slope of the nave were re-slated, the flat roof north of the tower re-roofed, and stucco repairs carried out with funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund. Repairs are currently underway for similar works to the south side of the church grant-aided by the Heritage Lottery Fund and due to complete in 2018.
