Heritage Open Days 2014: St Peter's Church

  • 13 September 2014

A beautiful High Gothic church designed by A W Pugin at the height of his powers in 1844. Directly attached to it is a fine modern church “in the round” sympathetically added in 1969. The casket containing the purported relic of St James’ Hand will be shown in the Chancel. The stained glass windows in the old church and the wall mosaic in the new are particular highlights.
The nearby Pugin Rooms will host a photographic display illustrating the rich heritage and history of the buildings.

Admission
