Holy Innocents’ was designed by the great Victorian Willam Butterfield. Though now absorbed into London’s suburbs, it is classified as one of “country” parish churches and humble it is. Butterfields beautifully simple polychromy, oak porch and scissor trussed roof and brutally monolithic font was not always appreciated. Godhart-Rendel, not a great fan, commented; “quaint and characteristic though ugly enough’.
We are pleased to be repairing and restoring this building in 2015 with some exciting modern intervention.
