PALMERS GREEN PARISH CHURCH
The foundation stone of the church of St. John the Evangelist was laid in October 1903 and just over a year later the first part of the church was available for use. The remainder, including the tower, were complete by 1908. A very clear join is noticeable between the two building phases.
The architect was John Oldrid Scott, one of the lesser known of the architectural family who specialised in churches. It would appear that he was challenging himself to use as many materials as possible; just on the outside you can see stone, brick, flint, copper, iron, tiling, glass and wood one you are inside there are even more materials on show!
