Places in History is an ongoing project, involving local history societies. It uses placemarks in Google Maps to identify the exact position of a building, street or other feature, with a satellite view of the location. The maps link to pages in HistoryWorld for historical details and images, and to timelines in TimeSearch for a broader range of data.


Places in History

Ham and Petersham – All Saints' Church

1899 - John Kelly (1840-1904) designs All Saints, Petersham, in the style of a Romanesque basilica, Mrs Lionel Warde of Petersham House having bought the Bute estate to build All Saints church in memory of her father, and to accommodate the likely suburban expansion of Petersham

1940 - All Saints is completed, and for thirty years is used for worship as a satellite of St Peterís, but it is not consecrated, as the anticipated growth in population never materialises

1942-2001 - All Saints is used variously for worship by the Anglican and the Greek Orthodox Church, and as a recording studio

2002 - All Saints is converted into a private house
