This Sunday 7 September is the 200th anniversary of architect William Butterfield’s birth.
This will be a special day for the congregation in St Augustin’s Church at Cemetery Junction. St Augustin’s was his last church and designed as a favour for his friend Canon Henry Twells. It is a smaller version of St Mary Magdalen in Enfield.
Neither of these churches was built in his distinctive banded brick style. More typical is All Saints Margaret Street in London, which is marking the anniversary, and Keble College at Oxford. The latter is by chance the patron of St Stephen’s Church from which St Augustin’s was planted in 1891.
