Architecture – the Romanesque Our Lady & St Alphege Catholic Church

I love this church’s architecture – I can’t believe it was only built in 1927, it’s like a little bit of Tuscany war picked up & dropped here.

According to the church’s website at  http://www.saintalphege.org.uk/ the church was a pet project for one priest who wanted a new church in the Romanesque style, different from the other gothic Catholic churches here in Bath. It looks quite out of place amidst the Victorian terraces but I think that kind of enhances its beauty.
