Visit St Augustine's Kilburn

A Grade I listed building Victorian Gothic Revival church on Kilburn Park Road in North London, is a huge church, the construction of which began in 1871. The church was consecrated in 1880, with the the tower and spire not completed until nearly two decades later in 1897-1898.

The church was founded by Richard Carr Kirkpatrick, the son of an Irish landowner, and in 1870, an area of what we are told was rather swampy land was acquired, on which the church was built. The large church is today often referred to as "the Cathedral of North London", apparently due to its size and ornate designs.
