The Society Visit the Former First Church of Christ Scientist

Many thanks to David Morris for leading a great visit to the former First Church of Christ Scientist last Friday evening.  Also many thanks to the building’s owner Danny for allowing us to look round and for the hospitality provided.  Edgar Wood’s First Church of Christ Scientist is looking splendid following recent restorations to allow it to be used for weddings and other events. As always David gave a most interesting account of how the building we see today came into being, with interesting plans and drawings taken from the archives.  Pevsner said of this building that it is ‘a work unmatched for originality in the country’.
