Context

Administrative/Biographical history:

Christ Church was built in 1854-55 as the church for Cubitt Town, on the Isle of Dogs. Cubitt Town had been developed by William Cubitt from 1842, with the intention of providing jobs and homes in the area. The church was designed by Frederick Johnstone, and the building materials included some stone from the old London Bridge. The parish was later united with Saint John, Cubitt Town (P88/JN), and Saint Luke, Westferry Road (P88/LUK).
