£35.00

Day trip to Dublin focusing on the High Victorian suburbs in East Ranelagh and the Pembroke Estate, where the walking tour will start led by Professor Alistair Rowan, Vice President, UAH

The visit will include the two major Gothic Revival churches associated with these estates: Christ Church, Leeson Park built in 1860 to designs of Rawson Carroll for the Molyneux Institute and the spectacular St. Bartholomews,  a Tractarian church in Clyde Road, designed by Thomas Henry Wyatt from 1865 and set at a focal point in the Pembroke estate. Christ Church is a large austere building whose pew rents provided an income for the Molyneux Blind Assylum while St. Bartholomew’s, is of the High Anglican tradition with a rich painted interior carried out to a scheme by Heaton Butler and Bayne and with a gilded chancel full of figurative paintings designed by Sir Thomas Manly Deane from 1879 to 1880. The interior of St. Bartholomew’s has recently been restored and is looking spectacular.

Tickets: £35 – Members only, includes light lunch and afternoon tea but not travel costs. The event will be arranged so that members can return on the 19:00 train.
