St Barnabas church, Eltham
This building has an interesting history. It was designed by the famous architect Sir George Gilbert Scott and originally erected in 1859 within the Woolwich Dockyard - approximately at TQ425791. It closed as a military chapel in 1923 and was re-erected in 1933 on its present site as an Anglican parish church. It suffered severe damage in World War 2 and was restored after the War by Thomas Ford. Perhaps surprisingly given its history, it is not listed.
