OTT Churches

Not sure how I got here but I was musing on churches that strike one as being different - sticking in the memory, I hope this isn't a call to ignore the diocesan architect! Ones that occur to me are:

  • Middleham Church, with the Richard III connections and the stained glass of the strangulation of St Akelda, can't find a link...
  • S.Maria della Vittoria Rome - principally for the Bernini!
  • Santa Maria della Spina Pisa - ornate outside - have never seen the inside
  • Birtles Church Macclesfield - somewhat closer to home - tiny place with lots of wooden carvings inside - can't find a web picture. I believe the carvings were brought back from Holland
