Barrow Hill, St Andrew

Barrow Hill, St Andrew

Built in 1895, St Andrews is a modest little arts and crafts church. It was the first ever architectural commission of Sir Raymond Unwin and his first collaboration with his future business partner, Barry Parker, who designed the fixtures and fittings. The Town and Country Planning Association regard St Andrews as one of the real symbols of the birth of the Garden City movement.

The church has stained glass by Shrigley and Hunt and William Morris, a magnificent Holt pipe organ, original Parker and Unwin furnishings and a reredos designed and made by Unwin as a gift to the church.

Join us for Heritage Open Days or our annual Festival of Christmas Trees to view this architectural gem.
