Designed by Joseph Peacock in 1851, St Simon Zelotes is a striking and distinctive church built in the High Victorian tradition. It has a Kentish Rag Stone exterior and an impressive polychrome brick interior with abundant carving by John Lewis Jacquet. It is Listed Grade II*.
Several alterations to the interior have been made in recent years to meet the needs of a modern church. Although extensive in parts, these have been done to blend into Joseph Peacock’s interior and to look as if they are a natural part of the design. The works were carried out by Quinlan Terry Architect.
