Interested that you found Farm St Church - much of it is the work of Augustus (A. W. N.) Pugin of Houses of Parliament fame and also 'as seen on TV' through the recent programme about restoration of his home in Ramsgate. Pugin was a fascinating character, now returning from obscurity as fashion swings back to now be less scathing about anything Victorian. What marks him out as a great creative role model, whether or not you actually like his stuff, is his absolute dedication to popularising a strong personal and coherent view about what he believed in: and in the world of church architecture what he believed in was POINTS - hence his publication in 1841 on 'The True Principles of Pointed (or Christian) Architecture' See more on http://www.pugin.com/
