The Garrison church of St Barbara at Deepcut
The Garrison church of St Barbara at Deepcut
Unusually constructed of corrugated iron (then considered an advanced building material), the Garrison Church in Deepcut was built in 1901 to serve units then stationed in the immediate area. It was officially dedicated on 29 September 1901 as St Michael and All Angels Garrison Church. In 1905 an adjoining acre of land was acquired from the Crown as a burial ground. Electricity was installed in 1911 and the stained glass east windows in 1922. The church was renamed in 1967. A brass plate and a window commemorate the formation of The Royal Logistic Corps, whose Book of Remembrance has been placed in the Church. The Corps Book of Remembrance is kept in St Barbara’s Church and contains the names of all those who have died whilst serving in the RLC, whether on duty or off duty.
