Context

Administrative/Biographical history:

The church of Saint John the Evangelist was designed by Stevens and Alexander to accommodate a congregation of 1500. As too much stone and brick were ordered, the vicarage and adjoining houses were built using the extra stone and numbers 3-4 Ladbroke Mount (now Crescent) were built with the extra brick. At first the church stood alone 'in the hayfields'. It was consecrated on 29 January 1845. It was described in the "Survey of London" as the centrepiece of the Ladbroke Estate.
