Bust of John Nash by Cecil Thomas after Behnes, set up on the portico in 1956
Views of the front--entrance is at an angleAll Souls, set at an angle to the street, was part of Nash's Regent Street development. The only Nash church in London, it was criticized at the time, especially for its slender conical spire.
The circular portico and entranceWhile the church has a circular portico, it has a rectangular nave. Below the spire is a balustraded peristyle, echoing the portico below.
The unusual capitals--left and center: the peristyle capitals below the spire with dragon heads; right: capitals of the portico with bodiless winged cherubs
