St Dunstan's, Stepney Green
St Dunstan’s, Stepney Green
This Anglo-Catholic church dominates the corner between Stepney High Street and Stepney Way, right at the heart of the Tower Hamlets borough. Stunning in its Kentish ragstone external covering, the St Dunstan’s and All Saints has been part of Stepney’s architectural landscape since the 10th century AD. Its the East End’s oldest church and has had a great impact on the local community. The simplicity of its internal decoration, made of plain decorative stone and with two aisles on the side, gives the place a real sense of harmony and peace. The best moment to visit the venue is at the twilight, to enjoy the incredible sight of the building and its huge churchyard. A combination of down lights, shadows and tangled tree branches makes this place a memorable one.
