Artist's Description

The red Gothic tower of St Leonard’s dominates the town of Bridgnorth in Shropshire UK. Surrounding it is an oval of charming houses, almost like a cathedral close.

Seemingly Medieval, it is in fact almost entirely a Victorian restoration. This is because disaster struck during the Civil War when St Leonard’s was used by Cromwell’s troops as an ammunition store. A cannon shot caused it to explode, and fire swept through the town. The church was repaired, and in the 17th-century, the magnificent nave roof was installed.
