Bombed during World War II, St George’s Garrison Church survives as an evocative ruin with recently conserved mosaics, and a modern canopy roof, now available for all to enjoy.

Second phase conservation works

The second phase of the restoration has recently been completed and was largely paid for by Historic England. This has involved cleaning, replacing defective bricks and repointing. The stone work has been cleaned and restored throughout and the capitals which were on the top of the columns have been remounted on small columns and stone plinths.
