Welcome to the web site for St Marks church, Hamilton Terrace.

St Marks is a Church of England church in the Diocese of London. It is built on a site purchased in 1846 from the Trustees of Harrow School, who had owned the land since 1592. The Parish in which it stands occupies the extreme Northwest of the original Parish of St. Marylebone, which by 1846 had become an urban development area too large for the mother church to deal with.

The Church was built to a design by Thomas Cundy II and was consecrated on 24th June 1847. The Chancel was rebuilt and enlarged in the years 1878-9, and the baptistery was added in 1912 at the Southwest corner. The Church is mainly distinguished for its internal furnishing, especially as regards the Chancel. For more information about the construction of the Church see the Church construction page.
