'Architecture is best experienced in the flesh rather than seen from pictures’.
It is this idea which is behind London Open House enabling people to visit many buildings, 750 last year, many which are not normally open to the public and with free entry. The visitors are from London & beyond and last year ran into many thousands. The varied buildings open last year included HM Treasury in Westminster, The Mansion House in the City of London, Harrow School in Harrow. This year St Alban's, described by John Betjeman as ‘ The best Middlesex Church of the 1930’s’, will be one of these buildings.
Come and experience a fine 1930’s building designed by Arthur Kenyon and completed in 1937. It has Swedish & German influences externally but is full of concrete arches and vault internally. We have unusual and beautiful marquetry panelling in the Lady Chapel. North Harrow tube station is not far away and H11 bus, from Harrow-on-the-Hill tube station, stops immediately outside the church. We look forward to seeing you.
