The Champion, W1D

The Champion was built around 1860 in gault brick with stucco dressings and with a slate roof. Historic England have commented on its “lively classical detailing”.

The Champion’s most notable features are the splendid stained glass windows of the ground floor bar, featuring British historical characters, including David Livingstone, Florence Nightingale and cricketer W.G. Grace. The windows look old but were installed in 1989 and are the work of Ann Sotheran.
