London Occasionals #4
Can you name the church on the hill?
There are a couple of vantage points which give you a marvellous view of this north London church, looking very fetching on the crest of a hill.
I've posted another, closer, take on the church below.
If I say any more, I'll start giving away too many clues.
Suffice to say it is still in use as a church. It has bells which peal on Sunday morning.
And this photo was taken in the late afternoon.
It's the sort of place that still has a very traditional annual church fair, with tombola and a chances to throw sponges at the parish priest. (Or was that a clue?)
St Mary's in Dartmouth Park and the architect was William Butterfield. And do you know where the plaque commemorating him is?
Saint Joseph's Highgate?
Ruth (and Kate on Facebook) - you've got it!
