Christ Apostolic Church (formerly Church of St John), Highgate Road, Kentish Town NW5 - Camden

Church built on the site of the Kentish Town Chapel of 1783 by James Wyatt, of which the nave walls and apse remain. The rest was rebuilt in 1843-45 by JH Hakewill. High level repairs to the west end, grant-aided by the Heritage Lottery Fund and Historic England, were completed in 2011. A chimney fell in a storm in December 2013 causing roof and internal damage. Works to repair the roof damage are complete. Further internal and external repairs are needed.
