Hidden In Plain Sight – post 6

This little church of  St Luke’s was consecrated in December 1848, designed by F & H Francis, and its Gothic architecture makes it look a lot older than it actually is.

Its undergone a few changes since it was constructed. The tower was added in 1854 and the chancel lengthened in 1873. Although the architecture is Gothic, some of the stained glass windows are in keeping by being of Medieval design but some are in the style of the Pre-Raphaelites (a Victorian art/design movement). It was given a Grade II listing in 1972.

It’s still a busy community church, running mum & toddler groups, coffee mornings, etc as well as the traditional christian services.
