Church of St Augustine, Queen's Gate, Kensington SW7 - Kensington and Chelsea

Large church designed by William Butterfield in Gothic style completed in 1876. Constructed in Gault brick with stone and red brick banding with areas of patterned diaper work to parapets and gables and decorative carved stone panels. There is rich polychromatic decoration internally. Re-slating of the north slope of the nave and the north aisle was completed in 2011 with funding from Historic England and the Heritage Lottery Fund. The south side is in need of similar work, along with brick and stone repairs particularly to the west elevation where mortar re-facings of brickwork are failing.
