Visit St Stephens, Rochester Row

Built of Northumbrian sandstone to the designs by Benjamin Ferrey, a Gothic Revivalist taught by Augustus Charles Pugin alongside Pugin's son Augustus Welby Northmore Pugin, the Church of St Stephen in Rochester Row, Westminster, was funded by Victorian philanthropist Angela Burdett-Coutts in memory of her father.

The church was built between 1845 and 1850 and contains a William Morris window designed by Burne-Jones. Ferrey's other churches include All Saints church, Blackheath. St Stephens is open to the public daily with an active congregation and regular music events, the church is a peaceful haven from the bustle of Victoria Street a short distance away, as your author found yesterday lunchtime when he dropped in.
