Architecture

The group will be looking at past and future modern structures and will include visits to buildings of interest. We will consider the artistic design, architectural complexities, functionality and construction aspects of buildings.

Everyone is welcome, members and non-members.

St Mary's Baldock

 

Dating from 11th Century, most of the building is now 13th-15th Century. Associated first with the Knights Templar then the Knights Hospitaller it has medieval furnishings and memorials.

We will be given an overview of the church and its history then a tour of the building.

Meet inside the church a little before 2.30pm so we can start our talk promptly.

£3 per person, all to go to the Church. An LALG member may bring one friend who's not a member; they will have to pay an additional £1 on the day.

THIS VISIT IS NOW FULL.

Panacea Museum, Bedford

This is one of the most interesting places we have visited, and are returning by popular request.
The Panacea Society was a religious organisation with members around the globe. As well as expecting the end of the world, it was part of a wider religious movement concerned with prophecy and still has a sealed box of prophecies from the 18th century.
The community also believed it had discovered a cure for all illness (using items breathed on by their leader), distributing it until 2012 when the last member died.
The subject of a 2019 novel The Rapture, the Society is now a charity providing funds for research and the relief of poverty and sickness in the Bedford area.
We will have a guided tour of the community’s home and Museum. The cafe in the garden should be open for drinks and snacks.

Booking opens here on March 1st. A member may bring a non-member but the non-member must pay an additional £2 on the day. It is a small building with numbers strictly limited, so we have arranged 2 separate tours, at 11am and 2pm.

For the 11am tour:
Meet outside the museum at 10.50am.

Singing Carols by Candlelight

We had a lovely time yesterday at the candlelit St Mary Magdalene, Caldecote. We sang carols, with harmonium accompaniment, while nibbling mince pies and quaffing mulled wine.

The church was beautifully decorated by LALG's very own Flower Arranging Group. The photos show one of the window sills and the show-stopping arrangement on the font.
