Farm Street offers the first illustrated account of the Jesuit Church of the Immaculate Conception, located at Farm Street in Mayfair, London. Building on an inauspicious site between some stables and a workhouse, the architects created a contrasting interior of exceptional beauty and opulence. The church consequently grew to become a center of British Catholicism, witnessing influential sermons and masses attended by such prominent figures as Evelyn Waugh, Edith Sitwell, and Lord Longford.
This book charts the intricate negotiations that led the Jesuits  to build when and where they did, offers a definitive architectural history of the building  itself, and tells the story of the church through the war years up to the present. Including specially commissioned photographs by Andrew Twort, this sumptuous book, whose proceeds support the ministry of the Church of the Immaculate Conception, tells the remarkable story of one of London’s great Catholic institutions.
Michael Hall is the author of George Frederick Bodley and the Later Gothic Revival in Britain and America, among other books. Sheridan Gilley is the author of Newman and His Age. Maria Perry is the author of The House in Berkeley Square, among other books.
