Context

Administrative/Biographical history:

Saint Stephen's Church was built within a year in 1866-1867 and consecrated on 10th January 1867. It was designed by Joseph Peacock. A temporary church on the east side of Gloucester Road had opened in early 1866. The church became 'higher' after the 1870's and by 1900 was firmly Anglo-Catholic in character and was remodelled in the early 1900's to reflect this. Poet TS Eliot served as churchwarden at Saint Stephen's for twenty-five years. The church has a memorial plaque to him.
