Lecture on George Pace, a prolific Church architect in the post war period.

About this event

George Pace was the Country’s most prolific Church architect in the post war period. He designed new churches, restored cathedrals and re-ordered hundreds of parish churches including locally St. Martin le Grand.

He had an exceptional knowledge of mediaeval architecture, but was a modernist designing in concrete and steel using Yorkshire craftsmen to make a church an act of worship in itself. He worked in the tradition of the great Victorian architects designing everything down to the light fittings and door handles.

The lecture will be given by Peter Pace and will be followed by drinks in the Undercroft.
