Holy Trinity Church, Cloudesley Square N1 - Islington

The church was built 1826-9 to the design of Sir Charles Barry. Urgent repairs to the roof and high level stonework were carried out with funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund and Historic England in 2006-7. The west turrets (clad in netting and scaffolded), the aisle roofs and internal plaster and lath ceilings remain in bad condition. The Diocese of London has recovered the lease from the former tenants, has commissioned surveys, and is actively seeking funding to complete the necessary internal and external repairs to facilitate re-use. Currently the building is not in use as a church.
