Church of St. Augustine's Queen's Gate. Architect: William Butterfield. 1865. Queensgate Mews, Kensington, Greater London SW7 5JE. The surprisingly sparse entry on the British Listed Buildings, which explains that the church interior has been "repainted after white-washing,” mentions the “rich marble to chancel and font. Fine brass lectern. Painted ceramic tile pictures to aisle walls.”

Left: Stonework to the left of the altar. Right: The reredos that covers Butterfield's original stone cross..

Left to right: Gothic revival iron work on door, Daniel, and The Nativity. The two images at right are examples of the church's tile paintings, the remainder of which you can see by following the link below.
