On the way back to Lambeth North underground station, Mr Monkey had a look at Christ Church. This was built with money raised from Americans, and opened on July 4th, 1876, on land that was earlier used for a Female Orphan Asylum. Only the tower survived the Blitz.
You can see a picture of the church as it used to look at the English Heritage ViewFinder website.
