Butterfield and Beyond

On Saturday, September 21st, Tina Sitwell and Tom Roberts attended Butterfield and Beyond, a conference devoted to churches designed by William Butterfield,  at St Augustine’s Church, Penarth, Wales.

St Augustine was built by William Butterfield in 1866 and served as the focus of the conference supported by other speakers talking about William Butterfield’s work.  There was great enthusiasm for Butterfield and it was decided to set up a network for exchanging advice, ideas and organising visits to other Butterfield churches.   Heytesbury and Knook (also restored by Butterfield) churches may be a future venue for the Butterfield enthusiasts!
