The C20 Society has published a new online database of C20th churches and chapels in the UK with the aid of a grant from Historic England. C20 places of worship are incredibly varied and interesting, ranging from the traditional Gothic to innovative designs with features like concrete hyperbolic paraboloid roofs. Many also have wonderful fittings, including stained glass, fonts, sculpture, murals, tilework, mosaics and tapestry in every C20 style. Yet these inspirational and significant buildings remain under-represented in Historic England’s designation list. It is therefore hoped that the new database will help draw attention to our incredibly rich heritage of C20 churches and chapels.
