Rotherhithe Illuminated ! is crowdfunding

raised of £3,450 target by 61 supporters

Weʼre raising £3,450 to complete this community project. The illuminated St. Mary's Church spire & clock faces and Christopher Jones Memorial now look amazing!!

Don't have time to donate right now?


e illuminated spire and clock faces of St Mary’s, an 18C Grade II listed church, now act as a beautiful waymark from every direction, and the illumination of the Christopher Jones Memorial emphasises the Mayflower story. The historic Church spire is visible from London Bridge, Tower Bridge, from the Thames Path, from across the river in Wapping, and to people travelling along the river on boats and ships at night.

The soft illuminations highlight on a daily basis after dusk, the architectural details of this magnificent church and make the public realm more engaging, foster community wellbeing and pride of place. The area is also much more inviting after dusk.

Rotherhithe has played a key role in London's maritime history, and St Mary’s Church has many historic connections, including links to the Mayflower and HMS Temeraire.

In 2021, Rotherhithe Illuminated! successfully commissioned the subtle illuminations of the two figurines on The Old Schoolhouse, the building opposite the Church. This element of the project is also much admired.

Rotherhithe Illuminated ! is now fundraising for the final £ 400 of the £3450 unbudgeted costs incurred by delays and C-19 issues. .

We hope you will be able to support us reach our target.
