Christ Church Spitalfields
A famous Baroque design by Nicholas Hawksmoor built 1723-29, with an impressive 225ft stone tower and steeple rising from a massive columned portico, its interior, a simple rectangular box of massive proportions is lit with large clear windows, doors in both north and south elevations originally served the double axis aisles.
Christ Church was built under the Act of Parliament of 1711 which required the building of fifty new churches to serve the new populations on the fringes of London. By the 1950s it was nearly derelict and under threat of demolition, a Hawksmoor Committee was formed to save it. The roof was rebuilt 1966 and in 1976 The Friends of Christ Church Spitalfields were formed with the aim of restoring the church. It is now once again used for worship, and is also well used as an events and concert venue.
