St Mary’s church – Decoding the brief
July 10 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
A treat for fans of architecture, history, conservation and more, this public lecture will be given jointly by the parish’s conservation architect, Ian Angus, the designer of the recently-built Bishop Edmund King chapel in Oxford, Niall McLaughlin, and leading church historian the Revd. Professor Mark Chapman. As well as talking about the work that’s been done, they’ll try to identify what was in the design brief Thomas Hardwick might have been handed when he was appointed architect for the current St Mary’s building in the late 1780s.
