Church of St Matthew, St Matthew's Avenue, Surbiton - Kingston upon Thames

Designed by CL Luck in Gothic style and built in1875 in Kentish ragstone with limestone dressings. It has a square tower crowned with a tall octagonal stone spire. The pitched roofs are covered in clay tiles. The spire and tower suffered from erosion of stone and pointing and embedded ironwork resulted in cracking of stone. The mullions to the belfry openings had to be strapped temporarily due to loss of stone. Repairs to the tower, spire and belfrey openings are being grant aided by the National Lottery Heritage Fund and are due to complete in 2019.
