Fascinating local churches

I wrote the history of St Peter's Church Southborough today. I had the feeling that this church's history has possibly not been pulled together in quite this way before, inspite of being a "Decimus Burton church"....For those who do not know who "the Tenth Child" (decimus) was, he designed classical Regents Park, London, the glasshouses at Kew Gardens, some of elegant Tunbridge Wells and the Athenaeum Club in London. He became one of our greatest classical architects.
