Church of St. John the Divine, Richmond-upon-Thames, Surrey

St John the Divine began life as a chapel of ease for the parish church of St. Mary Magdalene. It was constructed in 1831 to designed by Lewis Vulliamy and cost £5,633.

In 1838 it was decided that the chapel should become a parish church in its own right and it was raised to that position under Canon John Hales. Amongst the famous parishoners over the years have been T.S. Eliot and Dorothy L. Sayers.
