Holy Trinity Cloudesley Square

The Society is supporting plans for the restoration of this local landmark, one of three churches built in Islington in the 1820s by Charles Barry, and notable for its twin turrets reminiscent of and modelled on those of King’s College Chapel in Cambridge. It was deconsecrated in the 1970s and has been allowed by the subsequent tenants to fall into a ruinous state of disrepair. It now faces the prospect either of a radical change of use (albeit at enormous cost) or declining into an embarrassing eyesore. We have organised two visits to the church and are closely involved in the project as it evolves.
