We’re thrilled to share the exciting news that St Mary’s church spire+clock faces and the Christopher Jones memorial were finally illuminated on the evening of 19th April 2023.

After 6+ years and a huge number of Covid-related delays and other unexpected difficulties, the Diocese of Southwark and the US Embassy agreed to extend their respective deadlines. RMA worked with CES Lighting to deliver a key element of the original Rotherhithe Illuminated! legacy lighting project. This historic church was always the centrepiece of the original project, as the illuminated spire will then be seen clearly at night from the river, from Tower Bridge and from London Bridge.

When these buildings are illuminated, the spire of St Mary’s church and the chimneys of Thames Tunnel Mills and the Brunel Museum will be visible from both London Bridge and Tower Bridge, from the Thames Path, and to people travelling along the river on boats and ships at night.
