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.

Future Conservation Work

A second phase of conservation works has been completed. The scope of the work was based on the results of a survey funded and commissioned by Historic England in Summer 2015, and aimed to secure outstanding areas of the fragile fabric- largely the decorative fittings and features in the east end. HOLTOP led the work on behalf of the Woolwich Garrison Church Trust, working in partnership with Historic England, together with ecclesiastical and conservation architects Thomas Ford & Partners. 


We are delighted that the Mercers' Company has offered a grant for the conservation of the pulpit and reinstatement of the alabaster panels currently in storage. Decisions from Historic England and the War Memorials Trust are expected on pending grant applications. 

Once the funding has been secured - estimated total required is £260,000- development work will be commissioned before the work is confirmed and tendered.

All stages of the work will be overseen and managed by HOLTOP on behalf of the Woolwich Garrison Church Trust.

St George's Garrison Church in Woolwich, with its modern canopy roof and stunning mosaics, is both an evocative ruin and a contemporary space. Designed by Thomas H Wyatt in an Italian-Romanesque style, the Church was built between 1862-63 to serve the Royal Artillery in Woolwich. Today it is run by a local group, the Woolwich Garrison Church Trust who are committed to making it available for all to visit and enjoy. Directly opposite the Barracks in Woolwich, South East London, come and enjoy its beauty and peaceful garden.
