An Early C20th Church Architect
Tuesday 5th April 2011
Geoffrey is an Architectural Historian and prolific author. He has written books on the historic pubs of London. A book for English Heritage, Licensed to Sell must have been a joy to research as it tackles the history of public houses throughout the country. More soberly he is an expert on Ruskin and has written profusely on the churches of Leicestershire.
The Late Gothic Revival architect Temple Moore was the subject of this lecture. He was a pupil of George Gilbert Scott Jnr. By 1890 he had established his own practice and specialised in churches. Many of his works are located in the North East. The one best known to our members is the west end of Hexham Abbey.
