Geocache Description:

A black 35mm film container is not inside the church grounds but on the rialing towards the back of the church near the wall of the church. Take a moment to see the sculptures in the gardens too.

Thanks to Sadex for his help.

If anybody would like to expand to this series please do, I would just ask that you could let Sadexploration know first so he can keep track of the Church numbers and names to avoid duplication. There is also a Church Micro Stats page found via the Bookmark list.

HOLY CROSS CHURCH was consecrated on 1st November 1888. It came to be built following the assassination in 1874 of Commodore James Goodenough who was speared to death on the Island of Santa Cruz; Holy Cross Island in the South Pacific.

The Goodenough family negotiated for a new church to be dedicated in his memory and to The Holy Cross. This dedication is the only one of its kind in the Church in London. Behind the font you can see a small brass plaque which commemorates these things.

The church bell which hangs at the west end of the exterior of the church is the bell from the Commodore’s ship, ‘The Pearl’, which is rung to call people to prayer and to the Parish Mass to this day.

The people of the parish contributed to the church’s building and many of the local poor each paid one old English penny to cover the cost of a single brick! The Church was built for the then princely sum of £10,000. It was built with a crypt, which is now a social centre welcoming many people through its doors.

The architect was Joseph Peacock.

PLEASE NOTE: This cache should be available at all times but it if it is not replaced in its original location, it may not be reachable when the gates are locked. Therefore, we recommend this as a daytime cache only.
