15th September 2023 – 12pm
High Street, Dudley DY1 1QD
Join project architect Matthew Vaughan for a tour of the Church of St Thomas, Dudley, often called ‘Top Church’.
Join Matthew Vaughan the architect for Top Church Dudley ‘St. Thomas’. for an exclusive group tour on Friday 15th September at 12 noon. This will be an opportunity to see the conservation work currently being done on this early 19th cent. church, which, according to Pevsner/Foster/Wedgewood, “combines the delicacy of Georgian Gothic with a solid grandeur which anticipates Victorian seriousness”.
There will be opportunity to access the scaffolding and see some details of this magnificent building ‘up close’. The building still retains its medieval crypt and by way of contrast has iron roof beams.
Please wear appropriate clothing and wear sensible safety shoes and if you have a hard hat, please bring it.
This tour is limited to 10 people.
