Overview

An introduction to some of the local churches built during the Victorian period. We will look at how religious movements and A.W.N Pugin influenced the design of church buildings and how Neo-Gothic became the only “Christian Style” to use. A visit to a church in the town will form part of the course to enable participants to fully appreciate the Gothic Revival legacy.
