Eric Gill's church

St Peter, Gorleston-on-Sea, Norfolk

 

Constructed in 1939, this is Eric Gill's only church. Everything is his, although some of the details were completed after his death. The glass is more controversial - Gill wanted clear glass throughout, but Joseph Nuttgens' glass was installed in the east window in 1963. Nuttgens called it his 'revenge on Gill'.
