About the church

Built: 1958 - 67
Architect: David Nye
Listing: not listed

This church of Christ the King was self-built between 1958 and 1967, to a design prepared by David Nye FRIBA. The building is tile covered, tent like and based upon the use of Utile portal frames and low brick walls to a traditionally cruciform plan. The design is similar to many others commissioned from this architect and was an attempt to provide an effective place of worship at a reasonable price. The result in this case is simple and yet most impressive.
