Building    From 1825 

St Luke's Church West Norwood

Categories: Religion

Designed by Francis Octavius Bedford. Unusually it is orientated north-south instead of east-west. This is because of a stipulation at the time that no building in Lower Norwood should be built within 100 feet of an existing building without the permission of the owner of the other building.
