Full image caption

The Ascension of The Lord, Lavender Hill is an Anglo-Catholic church situated on Lavender Hill, South West London. It is thought to be the first church in England dedicated to The Ascension of The Lord.
The Ascension, Lavender Hill, was principally conceived by Fr John Bourdieu Wilkinson SSC. As a young man John Wilkinson often sat on Clapham Common and gazed down upon the blue fields of Lavender which made up the historic Lavender Hill. He often dreamt that if he ever was called to become a priest, it would be upon the Lavender Hill where he would build a church for the faith to be proclaimed.
