Kingston Church - Dorset

Kingston Church - Dorset
The Church of St James is a large Victorian church in Kingston on the Isle of Purbeck, Dorset. The first church in Kingston was considered unsatisfactory by the 3rd Lord Eldon, and is now a private dwelling. Lord Eldon commissioned G. E. Street to design the new church, which cost £70,000, a huge amount of money at that time. It is designed in the Gothic Revival style and is now known as 'The Cathedral of the Purbecks' and is still a local landmark today. Grade I listed.

Thank you for your kind comments Tanja. Inside was very Gothic but the surprise was that two people were practicing their music, on the organ and violin. They were very good :-))
