St Thomas's Church, Oakwood

St Thomas's Church, Oakwood, London N14, is an Anglican church in the Enfield Deanery of the Diocese of London. It is located in Prince George Avenue in the Oakwood area of the London Borough of Enfield, England.

History[edit]

St Thomas's is a modern Anglican church established in the 1930s as the suburb of Oakwood grew with the extension of the Piccadilly underground line to Cockfosters. Building stopped with the outbreak of the Second World War, and the church was not finished until the 1950s.[1] The architect was Romilly Craze.[2] Later a parish hall was added, and a distinctive tall green spire. There is a guide hut on the grounds across the car park from the main building.

Late in 2010 the spire was found to be unsafe and removed,[3] however this was replaced at the beginning of 2012.
