100th POST! 061230.Bath, St. John’s (Pevsner Architectural Church Chat)

St. John (R.C.), South Parade. 1861-3 by C.J. and E.J. Hansom. A demonstrative proof of how intensely the Gothicists hated the Georgians of Bath. Lofty tower with spire and spirelets. Ambitious aisled name with clerestory, transepts, broad polygonal apse with side apses. The exterior rock-faced, in the interior circular pink granite piers with elaborate foliated capitals. – SCREEN of iron. – STAINED GLASS. In the rose windows, quite good and glowing. Screen and glass are by Hardman. – VESTMENTS. Genuine C15 vestments are in use at St. John’s.” from Nikolaus Pevsner, The Buildings of England: North Somerset and Bristol, (Harmondsworth, Middlesex: Penguin Books, 1958), 106

…But who cares about that. This is Bath DP’s 100th post! Let’s dance and bang upon tambourines! or something.
