Visit to St Michael and All Angels, Heavitree (Buildings Section)

Fri. 8 November 2024 at 1:30 pm

£10

A visit to the church of St Michael and All Angels, Heavitree, Exeter.

St Michael’s is a magnificent example of a Gothic Revival church built by the noted local architect David Mackintosh with a landmark tower by E. H. Harbottle. Its grade II* listing reflects the retention of late medieval nave piers and a stunning reredos by Sir George Gilbert Scott, originally sited in the Cathedral.

There will be a presentation by Dr Bridget Gillard on ‘The History of St Michael’s Church in ten Objects’, followed by master glazier and stained-glass artist, Andrew Johnson, on the stained glass windows. Ending with a cream tea.

Cost is £10 including the cream tea.
