John Betjeman visits St Mary the Virgin, Wellingborough

St Mary the Virgin, a 20th-century church near Wellingborough railway station, is famous for the interior by its architect Sir Ninian Comper. I have tried to visit it a couple of times but found it locked.

John Betjeman had more luck when he made this for Shell in 1960, but if ever a film cried out for colour stock...
