2019 Church Tour

Savernake church Wiltshire statue by Sir Alfred Gilbert

Churches of the Kennet Valley. 23/07/2019 5pm to 26/07/2019 1pm

This 3-night course is based at Denman College near Abingdon. Transport is included for two full day outings and selected trains are met at Didcot or Oxford stations for those coming without their own transport.

Discover a new selection of churches in the wonderful Kennet and Lambourn Valleys. We will learn about the architecture of the churches, their building materials, furnishings, memorials and stained glass. There will be two full day outings to enable hands-on exploration so a degree of walking will be involved.

Includes visits to Savernake, East Shefford and Lambourne.

Have you ever wondered how the local styles of English parish churches display themselves? On this course we find out the characteristics you can expect to see in the churches of the Kennet and Lambourn Valleys. It`s an area where in the nineteenth century a lot of money was available so expect some lavish Victorian monuments and intervention.

NB: The course is suitable for those with little or no previous experience of `churchcrawling` although those who have attended previous courses will be most welcome and will able to build on their previous experience.
