Sacred Heart, Southwold

Sacred Heart, Southwold
The Church of the Sacred Heart of Jesus is the Roman Catholic church for Southwold, in Suffolk. Its architect was Benedict Williamson (1868-1948), who worked mainly in the Neo-Romanesque style.

Construction began in 1912 but was delayed by the Great War. The church opened for worship in 1916. It and its attached presbytery (on the left) were listed Grade II in 2000.

What caught my eye was this church's similarities with the roughly contemporaneous Castle Drogo by Edward Lutyens.

Your beautiful capture is greatly admired

That's a very unusual's a lovely building, but it doesn't look very "church-like" to my eyes. Nicely taken Roger.

Thanks, both.

I didn't know it was a church until I got close. I just saw a fine and elegant building, which was enough to make me stop.
