Administrative/Biographical history:

Muswell Hill Presbyterian Church, at the corner of Prince's Avenue and the Broadway, was registered in 1899 and completed in 1903. The church was built of flint and terracotta, to the designs of G. Baines, with late Gothic and art nouveau features, including a corner tower surmounted by a copper spirelet. Its materials and style later won widespread attention and led to a campaign for its preservation after the Presbyterians joined the Congregationalists in 1973. The building, seating around 600, was unused in 1976.
