St. Mary Magdalene, Paddington (London)
St. Mary Magdalene, Paddington is a fine church in the Paddington district of London.
It is situated in Rowington Close, of Woodchester Square, close to the Grand Union Canal and strikingly visible from the Westway motorway.
St. Mary`s is a 19th century church, built between 1865 and 1875 under the watchful eye of Richard Temple West, the sometimes controversial Anglo-Catholic vicar.
He chose G. E. Street as his architect, and Street made excellent use of a difficult site. Later, Ninian Comper added a memorial chapel to West, after his death in 1893.
