About Saint Mary Magdalene Church

St Mary Magdalene does not have a car park but parking is possible in the local streets. Buses 121 and 307 stop outside the Church, buses 191, 239 and 313 stop nearby and we are a short walk from Enfield Chase station.

St Mary Magdalene’s Church, standing floodlit at the top of Windmill Hill, Enfield, has been a source of spiritual inspiration for worshippers and others in the local community for more than 125 years, as well as a notable landmark for much of North London and South Hertfordshire.

Located on the highest hill for many miles around, St Mary Magdalene stands 250 feet above sea level. The tower, complete with spire, reaches a further 140 feet skywards.

Cruciform in design, with north and south aisles, a south porch and a west tower, the church is as long as it is high, measuring 140 feet. The nave is 55 feet high from ground to the ridge of the roof and 50 feet wide.

The structure consists of coursed Kentish ragstone with Bath stone dressings in an early English style.

The church architect was William Butterfield and was completed in 1883. The Lady Chapel was added in 1907.
