Statues

The statue of St Mary Magdalene half-way along the south side of theChurch was designed and executed by M Dupon of Bruges, as were those of St Joseph (on the north side of the church) and St Anthony of Padua (in the north glazed porch). The stone canopy above St Antony is a copy of the canopy above the gatehouse of St John's Hospital in Bruges. The original of the statue of St Joseph is to be found in the church of Our Lady in Bruges, and another copy is in the Shrine Church in Walsingham, where a lamp burns constantly beside it for the members of the Guild of St Joseph, established at All Saints by Fr Twisaday as a Guild of servers, but now open to all members of All Saints who gave practical assistance in maintaining our worship.

The statue of Our Lady was rescued from St Luke's Church, which used to stand at the junction of St Luke's Road and Tavistock Road but which was destroyed in the war. Above the archway on the north side stands the Shrine of the Sacred Heart, designed by Martin Travers.
