1873 – St. Luke’s Church, South Kensington, London

Architect: George & Henry Godwin



Saint Luke’s was built in 1872 to 1873; designed by George and Henry Godwin. Chiefly responsible for fundraising was the Reverend William Fraser Handcock, a clergyman of means, who built a wooden church, subsequently covered in iron to conform with the London building regulations, which was opened in July 1871. This was then replaced by the permanent building.
