Admire All Saints Blackheath

A beautiful church in a stunning position at the heart of Blackheath, All Saints Blackheath was designed by Benjamin Ferrey, the Hampshire-born student of architect Augustus Pugin.

The church is particularly pleasing for its position on the Heath, distinct from the surrounding buildings, and also for the line of sight from the General Woolfe Statue in Greenwich Park, along Blackheath Avenue to its spire. We are told that it has Kentish rag surfaces and its vestries and porch were added in 1890 and 1899 by A W Blomfield.
