Church of the Holy Cross, Cromer Street, Camden Town WC1 - Camden

Church in the Early English style built in 1885 by Joseph Peacock, with internal features by Charles Nicholson circa 1913. Built of yellow stock brick under clay tiled roofs; stone dressings inside and out with red brick banding inside. An unusual two storey narthex houses the organ gallery. There is settlement of the foundations at the north east corner causing structural cracking to the vestry and associated walls of the church itself. Other repairs are needed to the east end roofing, north side guttering and brickwork. The congregation is actively exploring possible sources of funding.
