I suppose I ought to say first of all that I am not a religious person. This gallery was prompted by a American lady who explained that Churches are often of interest to people doing genealogical research. Then while traveling home from work one evening on the Docklands Light Railway, I was watching the tower of St George's-in-the-East go by, and realized that, with the possible exception of one or two pubs, it was the only building in the area with any architectural merit. The area around St George's was badly damaged during WW2 and consist mainly of ugly 1960's Council Flats. And it is true of many areas of London, both those like Stepney that were damaged during the war, and those outer suburbs that are little more than row after row of "Little Boxes", (as Pete Seeger so aptly put it), that often the only buildings of any interest are the pubs and the churches. So, as I already have photos of more than 130 pubs on this site, I thought I better start to redress the balance and add a few churches!
