The Archaeology and Heritage Group will visit two very different churches in Northamptonshire. St. Mary’s, Wellingborough is a complete early 20th C building, the masterpiece of Sir Ninian Comper. It is a large church of Gothic design, but with gilding and Italianate influence as well, resulting in an very individual church interior. In complete contrast, All Saints Brixworth is a basically Saxon building from the 7th C onwards, much larger than most churches of this age, with substantial remains from this early phase of church building - a real rarity.
We will meet in the car park at St. Mary’s 1030, and in the morning we will be able to photograph inside the church. Lunch will then be arranged at a pub en route to our next stop. In the afternoon, our visit to Brixworth will start with a short tour of the church, and we will then be free to photograph.
There is no charge for the outing, but participants are requested to make donations at both of the churches.
