TQ1193 : South Oxhey: St Joseph's Catholic Church

taken 10 years ago, near to South Oxhey, Hertfordshire, Great Britain

South Oxhey: St Joseph's Catholic Church
South Oxhey: St Joseph's Catholic Church
The church was founded in 1952 to serve the London County Council built South Oxhey housing estate. The church was built here, on the south side of Oxhey Drive, in 1960 and consecrated in 1981. Its website is here LinkExternal link The Church belongs to the Roman Catholic Diocese of Westminster.

Despite being such a large building with a prominent tower overlooking South Oxhey it is difficult to photograph being surrounded by houses on its eastern, southern and western sides. As can be seen this tower has been an obvious target for mobile telephone companies wishing to use it for mounting their masts.

From a Geograph point of view the Ordnance Survey's 193000 metre gridline runs through the church, from right to left in this photograph, so the opposite and southern side of the structure is in TQ1192.
