St Mary's Paddington Church Hall  

(Quinlan Terry 1981)

The Church Hall for St Mary's was designed in 1981 by Quinlan Terry in a vernacular classical Georgian style to match that of church (John Plaw 1791). The setting is pure rus in urbe, a little piece of village England beside the westway.

 

 
   

How to get there ?

 

St. Mary's Church is on Paddington Green, W2 and the Church Hall is just on the west side on St Mary's Square at the end of St Mary's Terrace. The nearest tube is Edgware Road (Bakerloo).
