London Churches in Photographs - The Project
Our Free Lectures • 59m
Following retirement and looking for a way to make use of all the photos Andrew Wood was taking of churches, he realised that there was not a comprehensive site for all the churches in Greater London. So, in late 2013 that became his goal and what we will hear about in this lecture.
Andrew is a retired IT professional whose interest in church architecture began whilst at school, when his history teacher ran a module on it for a group of largely uninterested 14-year-olds. Discovering the famous Pevsner a couple of years later was the entry to a world of endless fascination for Andrew. With children grown and retirement, Andrew has had increasing time to indulge in many of his interests, one being church architecture. He has created websites for Hertfordshire Churches in Photographs and ones looking at the architectural practices of lesser-known architects JEK & JP Cutts and George Baines and Sons.
