Church of St Saviour, Markhouse Road, Walthamstow E17 - Waltham Forest

The church was built in 1874 of squared coursed Kentish ragstone to the design of TF Dolman, and has a 1980s narthex by Purcell. The roofs of the church were renewed after post-war fire damage to a lower pitch and finished in corrugated asbestos, later changed to asbestos slates. The leaking gutters have caused damage to internal plaster and decorations. The church was awarded a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund in 2018 for repairs to the nave and aisle roofs, rainwater goods and drainage.
