TQ0547 : The 'new' church of St Peter and St Paul, Albury
Impressively sited, part way up a hillside and overlooking the village rooftops. The story is that the church was built in 1842 to replace the one in Albury Park - at a stage when the owner of the estate was re-siting the village. It is said that he was abroad at the time the church was being built, and was disappointed to find it had been built of brick rather than stone. It seems a shame indeed that the church wasn't built of the colourful Bargate stone used for other Albury estate buildings. Photo taken on a warm spring afternoon, with the temperature at about 21C locally. There were peacock butterflies on the wing in the churchyard, a cock pheasant strolling around, and buzzards mewing overhead.
