Annunciation, Chislehurst   Church

Image Source: Old Postcard


That master of space, James Brooks, designed one of the little known but outstanding Kent churches, the Annunciation, Chislehurst. The lofty interior is dominated by the Westlake-designed mosaic, made by Salviati, which presides over the chancel arch. It dates from 1890. Westlake also designed stained glass here, both on his own and as a partner with Lavers and Barraud. The patrons are Keble College, ensuring that the Anglo Catholic origins of the parish are maintained.
