About this Event

G E Street’s first visit to Italy, undertaken in 1853, changed the direction of his architecture: it also led to his vastly influential book of 1855, Brick and Marble in the Middle Ages: Notes of a Tour in the North of Italy. The first major expression of this new architecture was at the church of All Saints at Boyn Hill in Maidenhead, Berkshire.

Completed in 1857, with its various attendant buildings and the steeple soon after, it presented a colony of buildings accommodating the needs of an ecclesiastical community. The Ecclesiologist, the arbiter of taste in High Church circles, declared, ‘We have seldom been more pleased with a design than the one before us.’

This visit, led by the church warden, will provide the opportunity to visit, in addition to the church, the former school (now the church hall) and to climb the tower. The schoolmaster’s house, the clergy house and the almshouse can be viewed from the outside. We will also be able to see the grave which Street designed for his first wife, Mariquita, a Maidenhead girl who died in 1874. The church’s architect will be in attendance.

Meeting place: Maidenhead Station for 2:00 pm or All Saints Church, Boyn Hill for 2:30 pm
