Notes NOTES: Only the tower survives (not seen) of a Victorian church of 1873-1876 by Paull & Bickerdike situated at the junction of Kennington Lane and Westminster Bridge Road. Adjoining the tower is an office block, with the church marked out by a larger window behind a pierced concrete screen. The church on the ground floor is 1958-1960 and the office block 1972-1976, both by the architect Peter John Darvall. It is now an academy.
