Context

Administrative/Biographical history:

The church of Saint Philip and Saint Andrew, Kensal Green, was erected in 1869-1870; a large part of the building cost of 12,000 had been contributed by an "anonymous" Christian lady from Bayswater. The architect was E. Bassett Keeling and consecration took place on 8th January 1870. It was built in the 'Early Gothic and Italian' style of red brick with Bath stone mouldings, a cruciform plan and consisted of nave, aisles, transepts and chancel with a belfry at the south east end. The church was admired by writers and critics of the day and it was described as 'restrained', 'admirably adapted for light and sound' and the plain but variously stained glass windows were said to have 'contributed to the beautiful effect of the whole structure'.
