Church of St Mary, Upper Street, Islington N1 - Islington

This is the fourth church on this site, having been rebuilt in 1955-56 by Seely and White to replace the 1751 church destroyed in the Blitz, which had replaced a C14 medieval church built on the site of a Norman church. Construction, as with the C18 church, is in brick with stone quoins and dressings. The neoclassical tower survived, along with the 1902 portico by R Blomfield. The portico has settled and the congregation is actively exploring options for funding.
