Although Sir John Betjeman described it as "stately", and Martin Travers in his drawing makes it look like a medieval gem, St Mary's is, in reality, typical of hundreds of low-price red-brick gothic churches that were put up in the 1870s and '80s in London and all over the country.
The church was designed by RJ Withers, a little known architect practising predominantly in the West Country. Withers had previously undertaken alterations to churches in London, and was working at St Paul's Church, Knightsbridge, when the decision to build St Mary's was taken.
