Situated on the north side of Burgess Road, just east of Tulip Road, St Albans Church was designed by architects Welch, Cachemaille-Day and Lander and constructed in 1933 by local firm G. E. Prince and Son. It was built to serve the new housing estates to the north and south of Burgess Road (see clipping 1 below). The west end of the church was not fully completed in 1933 owing to a lack of funds. A new west entrance and window was eventually added in the 1980s (see clipping 2 below). It is Grade II listed.
