Church of St Clement with St Barnabas and St Matthew, King Square EC1 - Islington

Designed by Thomas Hardwick and built in the 1820s forming one side of a Georgian square now replaced with 1960s housing blocks. The interior was re-ordered by Norman Haines in 1953. In September 2016 the church received a first round pass from the Heritage Lottery Fund for re-slating the nave roof along with repairs to the parapets, coping stones and the overhauling of rainwater goods.
