Corinth 2

Corinth 2
The Royal Garrison Church of St. George, Grand Depot Road, Woolwich.

What a great set of names to conjour with! This ruin was destroyed by a V1 flying bomb during the second world war, but it remains consecrated and is used for memorial services. Driving past it, it looks absolutely stunning — I genuinely thought it might be a shored-up Roman ruin. The main wall behind the altar has an elaborate mosaic of a cavalry rider-cum-St. George which really could come from just about any classical era.
