the exterior of sir charles reilly's 1909-11 church is hemmed in by other buildings and hard to see in its entirety, this is the west end. reilly was a modernist in love with america, and this looks like a voysey factory or an a.e.g. turbine hall rather t…

the apse of sir charles reilly's 1909-11 church is only accessible by squeezing down the side of the building through a lot of rubbish. the line from here to guildford cathedral is pretty clear.

view west down nave of reilly's church of 1909-11, crying out for some t.l.c. and flights of angels painted on those vaults. bit of decent glass wouldn't go amiss; something by judith schaechter would go down a storm.

old photo of the interior as built by reilly in 1909-11, with the earlier rood in place pre- 1935, but with the post 1915 metal gates unfitted. the electric wiring for lighting seems to be in place, but not the pendants' shades, nor are there any seats,…

view east down charles reilly's nave of 1909-11, with concrete vaults. the screen is his too, though the rood was changed for a more ornate example in 1935 by tyson smith. pevsner expressed surprise at the screen , yet there were several possible georgian…

very narrow low passage aisles with concrete vaults run down each side of reilly's church of 1909-11, his most industrial bits. at the time, even a sewer had more decoration; reilly was a hard line modernist
