Rainbow over Charles Church
Rainbow over Charles Church
The Church of Charles Parish was partially destroyed by bombing in the Second World War. City planners decided that the church should not be restored but would be left as a memorial. This decision was, I suppose, motivated by practical considerations as the large church of the adjacent St Andrews Parish is only a short walk away and there was little need for two large Anglican churches in the centre of Plymouth in the increasingly secular post-war years. This derelict church was intended to be a place of quiet contemplation but there is little chance of that as a large traffic roundabout was built around the church.
