TQ3480 : St Peter’s Church, London Docks


St Peter’s Church was consecrated on 30th June 1866. The church was the first Anglican mission to the poor of London. Further work was done to the church in the 1930s, and finished in 1940, only to be immediately destroyed by a bomb in the Blitz. Repairs were completed in 1949. The church was completely renovated in 1985. It is Grade I Listed.

It has a very interesting history as can be seen at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St_Peter%27s,_London_Docks and https://www.ianvisits.co.uk/blog/2010/12/05/a-look-around-st-peters-church-in-london-docks/
