I have removed all the June dates from the the St Michaels & All Angels open days as they are currently having a big restoration / clean up operation at the church and have been advised that it would be best to see the church in all its glory from July when this work should be complete.
I finally got around to visiting St Michaels and All Angels and can thoroughly recommend it. I went there expecting to see some great architecture and artwork, but I was blown away with the scale of John Haywards paintings. A free colour booklet explaining Hayward’s art is available at the church. There’s only a couple of dates left, Sept 24th and Nov 26th (both Saturdays).http://www.flickr.com/photos/traxcitement/6161622633/in/photostreamJohn Hayward Artwork at St Michael & All Angels London Fields (photo by Traxcitement)“
That’s quite a sculpture there.
I love this too
