Watch Knighton Free Church being built

On the Saturday before last I went into Leicester to look for St Mary Magdalene in Knighton village. I found the graveyard full of interesting memorials, but the church itself was locked.

Besides, I was more taken with the Knighton Free Church across the road. It was built in what I have called "humane modernism" - you could also call it "Hemel Hempstead modernism".

YouTube has a video that explains the history of this unexpected building and even shows in under construction.

I have posted a segment above, but you can watch the whole thing if you want to. I feel for those early Sixties children in their Sunday best clothes.

Some photos from that Saturday are below.
