WALK on Saturday 21 May 2011, 2pm

An afternoon walk focusing on four Dalston churches. The 'huge Teulonesque central tower' of Ewan Christian's Holy Trinity (1879) 'broods over the sanctuary' whilst the enormous St Mark's (1866) by Chester Cheston Junior has been described as the 'wildest piece of Rogue Gothic ever conceived'. Charles Reilly said of his St Barnabas (1910), which echoes the sublime spaces of Westminster Cathedral, that it was 'the building I should like to be  remembered by' whilst St Matthias (1853) is one of William Butterfield's most powerful and original compositions.
