Ten years ago today I created the 264th post for Greenford 365. To mark the blog’s anniversary I will attempt to post a photo every day throughout 2022.

We tend to think of churches having permanence, of being historic and protected but this one only lasted a few decades. Opened in 1930 to meet the needs of a population that had grown rapidly because of local development, it was the first to be funded by the “Forty Five Churches for Greater London Fund”. The church itself was a “hall church”, its nave and aisles at the same height, built of brick, and there was a vicarage in its grounds. In its place there is now Windmill Children’s Centre (on the right, behind the screens) and a small attractive housing development is on the site of the vicarage.
