St Peter’s is one of John Loughborough Pearson’s finest London Churches.

The new lighting consists of a family of pendants designed by Light Perceptions after carefully researching many of Pearson’s electroliers and gasoliers.

We found some of Pearson’s original drawings of St Peter’s in the archives of the V&A – including one that showed a range of pendant designs which had been offered to the benefactor at the time.

The new design of pendants uses one of these patterns, with new fittings designed for the Nave, Lady Chapel and choir. The pendants are supplemented by spotlighting for liturgical and community use.
