Event description

Description

A fascinating exhibition of church architecture drawn from the Archive of the Incorporated Church Building Society. Join Lambeth Palace Librarian Giles Mandelbrote for an introduction, before taking the chance to visit the exhibition.

The Incorporated Church Building Society celebrates its 200th anniversary in 2018. It was founded to provide funds for the building and enlargement of Anglican churches throughout England and Wales and its archive, held in Lambeth Palace Library, provides a rich source of church plans and other architectural images. Further papers (some 15,000 files relating to applications from parishes for grants from the Society) give additional information about church building in numerous localities between 1818 and 1982. The archive also provides information on the careers of many architects, including some of the most famous names active during that period.

Tickets are free but must be prebooked.
