The Croydon Minster Church, Church Street, London Borough of Croydon, CR0, dates from 1870 when George Gilbert Scott rebuilt the church after the previous one was destroyed by a fire in 1867. Some features from the 14th or 15th century church were retained such as the west tower, and the church was enlarged. The church was made the minster Church for Croydon in 2011.

  2. Thanks for sharing the pics. This shows the excellency and hard work of architects. This structure was created a long time ago and even after that it is an excellent piece of architecture. Cantrell crowley architects has that zeal to create to create magic in structures, which usually architects bears in earlier ages.
