The Chapels at Paddington Cemetery, Willesden Lane - Brent

Mid-C19 twin Anglican and nonconformist chapels connected by a pair of carriage-porches and a central bell tower behind which is a lodge. Designed by Thomas Little in 1855 as part of a new cemetery. The vacant buildings are isolated within the cemetery and too dangerous to use. Funding for repairs and a long term solution are being sought.
