St Lawrence & All Saints, Steeple Church - 


This church's most distinctive feature is its masonry. 
Built by architect F. Chancellor, 1884, his brown stone walls 
have mixed in, completely randomly, bricks at all angles.

My first impression of this church was an aghast "What the ... 
?"
I'm pleased to say though, that although the actual structure 
does not do a lot for me, the effect that Chancellor has applied, through the 
unusual and random use of materials is really rather interesting, if not 
aesthetically pleasing!
