Working on behalf of the Diocese of Southwark, Contractor JB Riney and Architect, Project Centre, to a very tight time frame, BBS was commissioned to provide stonework for new paved areas to the Churchyard of St Paul’s Parish Church.
- Client: The Diocese of Southwark
- Contractor: JB Riney
- Architect: Project Centre
Built in 1730, St Paul’s Parish Church, in the heart of Deptford, is one of London’s finest Baroque parish churches.
Using Yorkstone Paving, Portuguese Granite, Whitworth Yorkstone Flamed Paving, Whitworth Flamed Setts, Silver Grey Granite Edging, various SG Granite copings and cladding to planters and SG Bollards, BBS specified stonework that would perfectly complement the existing paving and architecture of the historic church.
To complete the works, BBS used their unrivalled knowledge and in-house design expertise to create a series of unique messages in the stonework with ‘Welcome to St Paul’s Parish Church’ and ‘Deptford Saint Paul anno 1730 ‘a pearl in the heart of Deptford”, inlaid in the paved areas.
With the completed project being a resounding success with all involved delighted with the end result, St Paul’s Parish Church and it’s surroundings, really is ‘a pearl in the heart of Deptford’.
