St George's Cathedral (formerly Christ Church), Albany Street, Camden Town NW1 - Camden

Former parish church. Antiochian Orthodox Cathedral since 1989. Designed by Sir James Pennethorne, built in 1837 in neo-Grecian style to serve Nash's development east of Regents Park, with later alterations. Grey stock brick with Roman cement and stone dressings. The Roman cement mouldings and past repairs in cementitious mortar are failing in places. Cracking is evident, particularly on the principal street elevations.
