The Centre holds Joyce’s archive, containing material compiled in the course of his research on G.E. Street and other Victorian architects. The archive is fully catalogued and available for research. This spotlight feature highlights original drawings from the archive and a representative sample of Joyce’s research.

Llandysilio, Wales, 1867-1868

Black and white photograph showing church building with round tower in a landscape setting St Tysilio, Llandysilio, Powys, Wales was designed by G.E. Street in 1867-1868. The Paul Joyce Archive contains 46 original drawings alongside Joyce’s research.

“St Tysilio. In the old circular churchyard an entirely new church, of 1867-8 by G.E. Street for the Reverend Waldegrave Brewster. Nave with N aisle, chancel, S timber porch and a round NW tower with conical cap to the belfry. It cost only £2,400. The previous church had chancel and nave with a W tower of 1833. The exterior is conscientiously ‘Middle Pointed’, or Early English to Early Decorated, in greenish Welshpool stone with Cefn stone dressings. The interior is ornate and equally successful.”1
