Hawksmoor’s Christ Church in Spitalfields was designed on the scale of a small cathedral. By 1957, the church was nearly derelict.
 
The seamless interior restoration complements the external fabric which was cleaned and repaired in the 1990s. The galleries have now been re-instated at first floor-level to complete what could only be described as a 30 year labour of love.
