Local Interest Visit to St Martin's Church and Barnet Hill, Blackheath, Wonersh Thursday 20 October 2016

St Martin's Church was designed by Charles Harrison Townsend, a renowned  Arts and Crafts Architect. It has beautifully preserved waterglass murals by Anna Lea Merritt RA. These were produced in a pioneering way such that they survive whilst other early 20th century murals have faded.

Not only will you be able to see these murals up close but we will be given a lecture both about the murals and their artist Anna Lea Merritt by one of our local historians.

The coach will then take us to Barnet Hill with its fascinating house and beautiful gardens, where, after some refreshments, we will be given a talk about the history of the house and a tour of the gardens by the Head gardener.

We will finish the morning with a light lunch, after which the coach will return us to KGV car park.

Tickets cost  £39 (including cost of the coach, mid morning refreshments and a light lunch) and will be on sale at the October lecture, but please contact us if you would ike to buy a ticket before then.

This is a unique opportunity to see, enjoy and hear about local art and design that is right on our doorstep, especially as these lectures and venues are only accessible through group visits.
