|Inside the clock face of St Peter's church|
On Saturday Becks and I did a couple of hours volunteering at St Peter's church where we were married. The church wasn't part of the official open house weekend, but had scheduled its open day for the same weekend.
|Three of the five bells|
The marketing for the open day had been slightly underwhelming which meant I needn't have worried about being unable to cope on the tours. In the two hours we were at the church I only showed two small groups round the tower and both of them were related to the church.

Apparently the panoramic views from the roof are excellent, but I was told the highest we could take visitors was up to the bells.

I'm a bit hazy on the details (as I didn't read the information boards), but Walter Segal came up with a design concept for self builders without construction experience to build their own homes and a group of self builders in Honor Oak Park did exactly that.

I did note that there there extreme amounts of built in storage which almost certainly help with the minimalism. Something we don't have designed in! If we end up with a house that looks and feels as good as the Courtyard House I'll be a very happy person.
