Level of description: Collection
Extent: 1.38 linear metres
Name of creator(s): Parish of St Mellitus, Hanwell | Church of England
The church of Saint Mellitus was constructed in 1910, from the proceeds of the sale of Holy Trinity, Gough Square, London. A parish was formed in 1908 and included the chapel of Saint Mark, Lower Boston Road, as a chapel of ease. The patron is the Bishop of London. The building is in a Gothic style, designed by Sir Arthur Blomfield and Sons. The 'History of the County of Middlesex' notes that "the dedication of the church is probably derived from the legend, propagated by Sir Montagu Sharpe, that Mellitus, Bishop of the East Saxons, was instrumental in the conversion of the Anglo-Saxons of Hanwell".
