Our next talk to be held on Friday 4th November in St Mary Immaculate Church, West Street, Warwick. CV34 6AB at 19.00hrs. Please note the earlier than usual time.
The church of St Mary Immaculate in West Street is one of relatively few notable 19th century buildings in Warwick. It is of considerable architectural significance, as one of the earlier works of Edward Pugin. Edward was one of a dynasty of High Victorian architects, designing in a short life – in the space of 23 years – an extraordinary total of 220 buildings, many but not all ecclesiastical.
Gerard will introduce Pugin’s buildings, analyse in detail the church in which we will be sitting, and note some of his other work in and close to Warwickshire. Like Pugin’s own work, his talk will be rich in images.
This is a joint meeting with St Mary’s Church and as such is not our usual day, time and venue.
