Pugins Gem St Giles

Pugins Gem

Always wanted to visit this church after reading about Pugin this place was his masterpiece  and hailed at the time as the most beautiful church in Britain, The wealthy Lord Shrewsbury who also owned Alton towers ” before the theme park” paid Pugin to create the most beautiful church possible and no expense was spared.

Inside it is a riot of colour and ornate design every surface is a work of art, I decided to try out an old Nokia Lumia 1020, although old in today’s terms its camera is quite awesome. Although it took a bit of getting used to and the lighting was a challenge, bright sunlight through the windows and spotlights in the church I manged to get a few shots. I could have stayed all day but a christening service started not  long after i arrived and out of respect I left (what a fantastic place to be baptised).

I also used a Samsung note for some pictures which i will post later so for those interested to compare.
