Saint Columba's Church - London, UK

Sir Edward Maufe
Date Built
Pont Street
There has been a Scottish kirk on this corner since 1884.  Its first minister was Donald MacLeod of Jedburgh.  It continued to serve the Scottish congregation in London until May 10th 1941 when an incendiary bomb dropped on the building and completely destroyed it in a matter of hours.  The congregation continued to meet but made  Jehangir Hall, at Imperial College, their home for the next 14 years.

On July 6, 1950, Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother, laid the foundation stone of the building we see today, designed by the architect, Sir Edward Maufe, who in 1933 had been appointed the architect for Guilford Cathedral.
