Kilburn becomes Manhattan



Kilburn becomes Manhattan

This church turned into Manhattan in the superb film Highlander

Location: Kilburn Park Road, NW6 5XB

Description: Consecrated in 1880 and widely known as the 'Cathedral of North London', St Augustine's is an Anglo-Catholic Parish Church of the Church of England with roots in the Oxford Movement - which began with a Sermon preached in 1833 by John Keble in the University Church of S Mary the Virgin, Oxford - and a proud tradition of serving its vibrant and diverse community with an active programme of worship and outreach.

And so to the classic 1986 film 'Highlander', in which an immortal Scottish swordsman must confront the last of his immortal opponent, a murderously brutal barbarian who lusts for the fabled 'Prize'.

In fact this church and area in Kilburn was passed off as Manhattan, NY, as the large and impressive red-bricked St Augustine's Kilburn is the church in which Connor McLeod (Christopher Lambert) meets Kurgan (Clancy Brown),

A classic film and an impressive church indeed!
