St PAUL’S, Deptford
St Paul's, Deptford, has been described as one of the finest Baroque churches in the country. It was designed by the architect Thomas Archer, a pupil of Sir Christopher Wren, and built between 1712 and 1730. It's an imposing wedding cake of a place, but impressive, mounted on a stone plinth and a little incongruous in its sadly run-down urban surroundings.
