St Mary’s Church in Stoke Newington

A view of the stunning St Mary’s Church⇒, designed by George Gilbert Scott, as seen from just inside Clissold Park⇐ at the eastern end. The church dates from 1858 and was built when the “Old” church (further down this page) was no longer adequate.   Inside the “New” church ⇓.

And, from the street ⇑.  Just to the left, on the nearer side of the street, is the old church ⇓.

St Mary's Old Church Stoke Newington

The old church site dates back to the early 14th century but was rebuilt during the 16th century.  This makes it the oldest Elizabethan church still in use in London.  It is also a venue for community events, artwork, music and for hire.  The website is here⇐.

Thanks for the visit and perhaps you would like the Clissold Park Goslings⇐.
