‘Beautiful’ St Augustine’s Kilburn in phone mast row

St Augustine’s Church in Kilburn has run into trouble with a proposal to have mobile phone masts in the tower.

“We are not against the church,” says the residents’ association spokesperson. “It is one of the most beautiful in London, in the same category as St Martin-In-The-Fields.”

The church, known as the ‘cathedral of north London’, is one of JL Pearson’s famous buildings with a lovely interior.

The row involves both local residents worried about more phone masts in the area affecting health and Westminster City Council which objects to the replacement of  original wooden louvres with a new plastic version required by the phone company.

It also appears that annual rental would not be substantial.

The Evening Standard and the Ham & High are running the story.
