On Saturday, for the tail end of the garden festival, we went to St Mark's Church in Lepperton. It was a beautiful afternoon, just right for spending the afternoon sketching. The church was dressed for a country wedding.
This Anglican church in Lepperton is thought to have opened in May 1900 with a dedication service on the 18th of January 1901.
It is likely that the church was designed by the architect Frank
Messenger and built by a Mr Mannix. Church records have been located
showing a £5.00 payment to "Mr Messenger". Tenders for the construction
of a church in Lepperton closed on the 11th of October 1899 - the
tenders to be submitted to Frank Messenger.
Here is my sketch:
They also laid on the most wonderful afternoon tea! Here are a few photos taken by Sarah Davison.
