How to read an English Country Church
13th July 2022 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm
July’s talk will be given by the Reverend Dr Nicholas Henderson who presents a fascinating journey through English history by looking at the art forms and architecture of English country churches.
This lecture will help us look at the architecture outside and inside, the church furniture, those mysterious nooks and crannies, high and low. How and why did it all comes to look this way?
