Coventry: The Church of St Thomas the Apostle, Longford
The church was completed in 1874 to the designs of John Cotton who was responsible for several other churches in the area. Until 1908 it was a chapel of ease within the Parish of Foleshill, but then the new Parish of Longford was created and St Thomas became the parish church. It is a Grade II Listed building by virtue of it being a 19th century church with streetscape presence on an historic arterial route, a well executed building by a renowned regional architect, and with fittings and glass mainly of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, with local connections such as the reredos, chancel glass and panelling.
