St Michael & All Angels, Enfield facts for kids
Designed by Richard Herbert Carpenter in an imitation of a 14th-century Gothic style, the church was begun in 1873 as a chapel of ease to the parish church of St Andrew. The following year a shortage of funds brought construction to a halt, and the west end was closed off with a temporary wall. Built of ragstone, the church consists of a three-bay aisled nave, a north transept, and a vaulted apsidal chancel, arranged in a manner advocated by the Tractarian Movement. The temporary wall was finally replaced with a stone wall and a narthex in 1963.
A parish was formed in 1931.
