Church of St Thomas, Old Hill Street, Clapton Common N16 - Hackney

Only the crypt (c1777), the tower and belfry (1827) survived World War II bomb damage in December 1940. The church was re-opened in October 1958 to designs by NF Cachemaille-Day; he incorporated the apse from William Burges's remodelling in 1873 and the 1921 World War I memorial. The asphalt water-proofing of the reinforced concrete roof slab has been much repaired over previous decades. It is still leaking in places, causing concerns about the structural integrity of the roof. The church has commissioned structural investigations and is seeking funding for a repair project.
