All Saints Church, Haggerston, also Church of All Saints, is an Anglican church in Livermere Road, near the junction with Haggerston Road, in Haggerston in London Borough of Hackney, east London. It is part of a parish with Holy Trinity Church and St Philip Dalston (demolished after bombing in World War II).
History and design
Constructed of Kentish rag with ashlar dressings, it was built between 1855–56. The church was extended by T.E. Knightley, probably in the early 1860s and due to growth in the congregation, with aisles remodelled and galleries added.
It has been extensively repaired, first following a fire and then war damage. Inside, the church is plastered and painted and its Grade II listing notes that the interior is: “curiously old-fashioned for its date and survives remarkably completely”.
The church today
Today, All Saints is part of Albion Square Conservation Area, along with neighbouring residential properties, Albion Square itself and Stonebridge Common.
