Visit: Street’s Church and House, Holmbury St Mary – G E Street Bicentenary

This visit is to the church which G E Street built in in 1878-79 as a memorial to his second wife, Jessie, who died soon after their honeymoon in 1876. It is very much a personal statement which he paid for himself.

Visit: All Saints’ church, Putney Common – G E Street Bicentenary

All Saints’ church, Putney, was opened as a chapel of ease in 1874. The interior is richly polychromatic and the many Morris & Co windows are of outstanding quality. This visit is our final look at a church by G E Street.
