Garrison Church of St George, Grand Depot Road, Royal Artillery Barracks, Woolwich SE18 - Greenwich

The Garrison Church, designed by two members of the Wyatt family, was completed in 1863. Although severely bomb damaged in1944, the Royal Artillery war memorials survived in the apse, including one to those awarded the Victoria Cross. A permanent protective roof was erected in 2015, grant-aided by the Heritage Lottery Fund. Mosaic wall decorations were repaired in 2016, and new gates were installed in 2018 by the Woolwich Garrison Church Trust. The repair of the memorials, further wall finishes, the floor, pulpit and altar, is expected to complete by 2019, grant-aided by Historic England.
