Building    From 1867  To 1945

St Augustine's Church, Victoria Park

Categories: Religion

This church was built, inside the Park, in 1867 to meet the needs of the expanding population, 22 years after the Park opened in 1845.  Following WW2 bomb damage the church was demolished (our end date is approximate) and the land returned to the Park. The congregation joined St Mary of Eton's and in 1953 the two parishes were formally united to be known as St Mary of Eton with St Augustine.
