St Andrew's Southgate

St Andrew's Southgate is an Edwardian Church of England church in Chase Side, Southgate, London.[1] It was built in 1903 and consecrated in 1913.[2] It replaced a chapel-of-ease (to the then parish church Christ Church, Southgate) sited in nearby Farm Road since the 1870s, which became known as St Andrew's in the 1890s.[3] St Andrews's gained parish status in 1928.
