TQ2879 : St Peter, Eaton Square

taken 8 years ago, near to Westminster, Great Britain

St Peter, Eaton Square
St Peter, Eaton Square
A Commissioner's church graced by a mighty hexastyle Ionic portico (TQ2879 : Detail of St Peter, Eaton Square, apparently based on the Erectheum on the Acropolis) and three-stage tower crowned by a small dome. Mostly in Bath stone, with stock brick on the sides. By Henry Hakewill, 1824-27, but rebuilt after a fire in 1836 by his son John (rebuilt again after being gutted by fire in 1987). Oddly it is tucked away at the north-east corner of the square. Grade II* listed.
The Church Building Commission was established in 1824 to oversee the building of more Anglican churches in urban areas which had experienced large increases in population due to the Industrial Revolution. St Peter was Belgravia's first church.
