photoblog image All Saints Church Evesham 1 of 5

All Saints Church Evesham 1 of 5

Yep more church pictures. 

 

All Saints church was originally built in the 12th century as a chapel for the monks of Evesham Abbey. The original Norman building was completely rebuilt in the 15th century to create an excellent example of Perpendicular Gothic style. The most impressive feature is the 16th century chantry chapel, built to house the tomb of Abbot Lichfield, the last Abbot of Evesham.
The church was heavily restored by architect Frederick Preedy in 1874. Preedy was known for his church restorations, and especially for his stained glass designs. At All Saints he designed 8 stained glass windows, the reredos, and pulpit.

I love the icey graveyard - our meadows look just now a bit like this - but no sunshine on this wintery day!
Bill Phillips: It is frosty here too but the sun is shining brightly
Quite a beautiful architecture here Bill!
Bill Phillips: It is quite elegant Richard
I'm bored already Bill, but have to reluctantly admit that this is a very good snapshot.
Bill Phillips: You will be thrilled by the interior. When we are able to rearrange a trip to Evesham you will be able to take some snaps of your own to bore me with

Bill Phillips: I love churches. What goes on inside them I am not so keen on grin
The colours here remind me of what my old slide colours have turned into.

This is beautiful, what a wonderful church and I love the sunlight.
