Old St Lukes


Nestled in lovely park gardens, the old St Luke's Church building is now a music centre for the London Symphony Orchestra.  It is mainly used for rehearsals, recordings and a few performances.

The church was originally built in the 18th century with its rather unusual obelisk spire.  It is on marshy land and so suffered a problems of subsidence.  Building in the wrong area a not unfamilar problem in the UK.

I'm sure the orchestra must get a very unique sound playing inside the church.

It's a lovely church. I'm sure the orchestra enjoys using it.
