Basil Spence Churches Tour -2-3pm St. Paul's Church
A tour of Grade II St. Catherine of Siena and Grade II St. Paul's Church designed by Sir Basil Spence.
The tour will be conducted by Russell Light of Sheffield School of Architecture.
A fantastic opportunity to see and tour two of Sir Basil Spence churches in Sheffield both opened in 1959. Starting with Grade II listed St. Catherine of Siena, "A strongly sculptural design with a powerful presence" (http://www.britishlistedbuildings.co.uk/en-466435-church-of-st-catherine-of-siena-#.WDYQ21ydK00), followed by St. Paul's Church, listed Grade II in 2000 due to "an outstandingly transparent design, this is Spences finest Parish Church" (http://www.heritageinspired.org.uk/filedownload/(WEB)%20Sheffield%20St%20Paul%20(Wordsworth%20Ave).pdf).
***Tours are advertised separatley, if you would like to attend both please sign up to both.
