All Hallows, Gospel Oak


Consecrated in 1901, the Church of All Hallows in the North London neighbourhood of Gospel Oak is described as architect James Brook’s ‘masterpiece’ and was envisaged on such a grand scale it was described by The Times in 1914 as ‘the Cathedral of North London’. Sadly Brookes died before completion and Sir Gilbert Scott oversaw and revised the design of the church.

Today All Hallows, crafted in Ancaster stone, is one of London’s finest example of ‘hall churches’, whereby the aisles and nave are of the same height, creating an expansive interior. Luke Hughes® were commissioned by the church to design and make 48 benches crafted in European oak. Designed to be stacked and easily reconfigured for various sizes and styles of service, some pews feature arms to be placed along the walls and some feature bookshelves for use in the nave. Each bench is finished with a twin-groove along the top rail and a slatted back rest.
