Church provision did not keep up with the expansion of towns in the eighteenth centre: prohibited by the expense of building, upkeep and a stipend for the minister.
So in celebration of victory over Napoleon, the Waterloo Commission of 1818 was given a million pounds by Parliament to spend on new churches. This attempt to cater for the spiritual and moral needs of the masses ended up building 214.
Most of these are dull - with the same bricks arranged by the same uninspired architects. A few are more enterprising, such as St Matthew’s of 1822, half of whose cost was met by the nouveau owners of villas in the village of Brixton.
The tower and Greek Doric portico is still impressive, though the interior is sadly empty of its original furnishings.

Timber-look tiles versus natural wood flooring
If you’re redecorating your home, the choice of flooring material is often a tough decision to make. Restored wooden flooring looks beautiful, but timber-look ceramic tiles can be just as aesthetically pleasing. Here’s a comparison between the two to help you decide which option would be best suited for your needs.
Timber-look ceramic tiles
Timber-look ceramic tiles are extremely varied in finish, providing you with plenty of choice. Tiles are constructed to be strong and durable, making them ideal in a family home where they will be expected to endure heavy foot traffic. Tiles are also easy to keep clean; simply mop the tiles with a suitable cleaning agent and water, and then allow the floor to dry naturally.
Traditional timber planks
Restored timber flooring looks gorgeous and naturally gives a warm feeling underfoot. Timber is pretty hardwearing and durable, and the cost of having your floor sanded, repaired and sealed will probably not be as expensive as having the whole thing removed and replaced with ceramic tiles.
If you have the timber treated and sealed, it can be used in kitchens, as long as the floor stays reasonably dry. Timber is easy to keep clean, although you should not use a vacuum cleaner with roller brushes as this can cause scratching. Timber flooring can be mopped using a damp mop, but you should not get the floor wet.
Over time, timber planking can become scratched and scarred, especially in busy areas with heavy foot traffic and by your pet dogs’ claws. This is fine if you like the vintage, distressed look, but if not, you’ll need to have the floor sanded and re-finished periodically to keep it looking good.
Ceramic tiles are treated and sealed in order to make them water resistant. This makes them ideal for use in areas such as kitchens and bathrooms or around indoor pools.
Tiles can feel cold underfoot during the colder months of the year and they can be easily chipped or cracked if a heavy object is dropped onto them, which could mean the hassle of removing the damaged tile and replacing it with a brand new one that is a perfect match.
As you can see, there are pros and cons associated with both types of flooring. The final choice is largely down to your personal preferences, your home environment, and the rooms you are re-flooring. For more information and advice on having your existing wood floor restored, contact us today.
