Church of the Annuciation, Bryanston Street, Westminster W1 - Westminster, City of

Designed by Sir Walter Tapper and built in red brick with stone dressings, with a steeply pitched slated roof over the nave and asphalt and lead roofs to the north aisle. Above the location of the rood screen is a slender copper-clad fleche. At the east end a flying buttress connects to the bell tower. On a corner site, the church is built up against on two sides. A deep narrow area around the other two sides serves the undercroft. The church has a problem with the ingress of rainwater and dampness has resulted in the detachment of plaster and water staining to the vaulted ceilings.
