Knebworth 2: A church open for business

A lusty piece of Lutyens
Knebworth Again

More fun this time in the village of Knebworth, as we parked close to a church, St Martin,s, a curiosity designed by Edwin Lutyens from top to bottom. Work started on the church, with its classical interior, in 1914 although the job was not completed until 1964. 


Inside two Doric columns appear to hold the place up and transepts dash off from side to side creating areas that distinctly look like a Greek church.

Rosie investigated between the pews, benches and cassocks and I made a sketch.
