Whelford, Gloucestershire, 1863-1864

The Paul Joyce Archive contains a set of five drawings and the original specification for St Anne, Whelford.

“An excellent little village church… and a fine example of Street’s elemental geometry. Of stone, with a round apse, and tiled roof with wooden pyramidal lead-covered bellcote. Small trefoil-headed lancets in the apse, and two-light late tracery with quatrefoils or trefoils in the nave.” – (Verey, D. and Brooks, A. (1999). Gloucestershire 1: The Cotswolds. Buildings of England. New Haven; London: Yale University Press, p 720)
