Event description

Description

Althought slightly out of the Thorney Island area, we couldn't resist a tour of St James the Less in Pimlico. Built in 1858–61 by George Edmund Street in the Gothic Revival style. This grade I listed building, has been described as "one of the finest Gothic Revival churches anywhere". By the time of its centenary, however, it faced closure due to dwindling numbers of worshippers. A campaign was mounted by Sir John Betjeman, founder of the Victorian Society, and others which resulted in this unique church gaining a reprieve.
