A Gothic Revival gem

This medieval-style flint and stone church is a Gothic Revival gem. Built in 1852, it was designed by Thomas Talbot Bury, who was trained by the great Augustus Pugin.

It has an octagonal turret-belfry and tower, and delightful windows based on designs from around 1320. The lovely Victorian interior still has the brass coronas and candleholders that would have bathed the interior in candlelight.

There is also a little organ with a Gothic case and a high altar of stone. The beautiful reredos was carved by John Bacon, as the request of his son, the first parish priest.
