St Alban, Teddington


Notes: The church of St Alban the Martyr was designed by architect William S Niven. Niven, who lived locally and who had been a pupil of Sir George Gilbert Scott, was involved with the restoration of the Chapter House at Westminster Abbey, an influence that was to have a profound effect on his design for St Alban. The design, in the French Gothic style, was based on a 13th century church in France. Though the church was operational from 1889 there had been insufficient funds to complete the building to its original design, with its west end being closed by a ‘temporary’ wall of asbestos sheeting giving it a ‘bomb damaged’ appearance at its west end.
Falling congregations meant that the church became redundant and neglected for many years. However local people campaigned strongly for the building to be saved and it was brought back into use as the Landmark Arts Centre.
