Condition

Saint Alban’s Church, Highgate is in sound condition although there is some spalling and delamination of walls, and in 2003 inappropriate repainting techniques and materials were being applied. The continued use of the place as a church has maintained it in fair general condition. Much of the building is covered in creeper, which in 2010 appears to have died.
