All Saints Church

Today we visited All Saints Church, Thorney Hill. Thank you Ingrid Tomkins for opening the church for us and for giving us an interesting talk about how it was built by Lord and Lady Manners as a memorial to their daughter Mary Christine who died in 1904 and their son, Lieutenant John Manners who lost his life at the Battle of Mons, 1914. We had the opportunity to study the beautiful mural, the theme of which is Te Deum, completed by the Arts and Crafts artist Phoebe Traquair in 1922.
