Attingham Trust visit

We welcomed visitors to the Vicarage and Church on the afternoon of Low Sunday from the Attingham Trust 'London House Course' led by Gavin Stamp and accompanied by HGS Trust architect David Davidson.
The participants were looking at the development of the London house from the Renaissance to the present beginning in the medieval period at the Abbot’s House in Westminster then exploring they 18th century through Spitalfields, Brick Lane and the East End before moving on to the aristocratic grandeur of St James’s. The course culminated in Hampstead Garden Suburb representing the 20th century.

Tea was served by our Sunday opening team and was clearly much appreciated.
