George Gilbert Scott's Bicentenary

Today is the 200th anniversary of the birth of Sir George Gilbert Scott. Glibert Scott was the architect employed by Lady Ripon to design All Saints Church in Nocton, as a 'fitting memorial' to her late husband Frederick Robinson, 1st Earl of Ripon. Gilbert Scott built in a style called Gothic Revival, which was extremely popular mid 19th century as the Victorians looked back to the 11th and 12th centuries, a period they regarded as creating buildings of the finest quality.

Repairs are now well underway to our Gothic Revival church which also has a major birthday (150 years) next years.
