Christ Church, Esher, Surrey

Benjamin Ferrey (1810-80)

1853

According to Chris Hawkins, Ferrey "was an architect with a sense of place... [He put] a fine building on a rise overlooking The Green and with a spire that signals the location of Esher for miles around." The inside of Christ Church also "fulfils expectations," partly because Prince Leopold personally contributed to the building fund. Queen Victoria attended worship here on later visits to nearby Claremont (pp. 65-60. [JB].
