St Bartholomew’s Brighton

This is quite an imposing edifice, built at the height of the Anglican Catholic revival following the Oxford Movement in the Church of England in the early part of the nineteenth century. One of six churches built in Brighton by the Wagner family.

It is as foreboding inside and out, with brick walls towering some six stories above the congregation.

Understated it is not. I loved the built-in pulpit with its internal staircase.

Some amazing adornments, but as scary as.
