TQ 2880 NW CITY OF WESTMINSTER NORTH AUDLEY STREET, W1 68/10 (east side) 24.2.58 Church of St Mark's - I A Commissioner's Church. 1825-28 by J.P. Gandy-Deering, the body of the church remodelled by (Sir) Arthur Blomfield 1878. Stone front on standard domestic plot width. A pure Greek Revival elevation taken up entirely by a fine portico in antis with 2 Ionic columns and quoin piers, their details taken from the Erechtheum, deep straight entablature across front and above, set back from frontage plane, a tall bell turret square on plan with splayed corner, pierced circular louvres, surmounted by cross finial, the turret detailing a derivation from the Tower of the Winds. The deep portico has 3 pure Greek doorways going into small vestibules and beyond into a 9 compartment "narthex" with four square piers with Grecian caps - a pronaos-like space providing a suitable transition through the domestic plot to the church lying behind. This was remodelled cleverly by Blomfield in his Romanesque manner retaining the galleries but with entirely Romanesque details, creating a chancel and opening up and elaborating the roof structure over the nave, polychrome brickwork and scallop capital stone columns. East window glass by N.H.J. Eastlake, etc. Survey of London; Vol. XL. London; Vol. I, N Pevsner.
