It was directly after taking this shot that I decided to sit
down, and consult the oracles ... aka Pevsner and Fitch.
Apparently, I was about to enter
"an orgy of the English
Arts-and-Crafts variety of the international Art Nouveau." *
"probably the best Art Nouveau church in England" **
So ... what did that mean to me? Er ... not a lot ... just
that I was about to see the best example of something in the country. But I
couldn't help but think arty-farty.
