The altar of the new church of St. Giles. Camberwell - ceremony of consecration, 1844

The altar of the new church of St. Giles. Camberwell - ceremony of consecration, 1844. Solemn dedication of a newly built church in south London. This magnificent structure...was consecrated by the Lord Bishop of Winchester [Charles Sumner]...the sermon (a very excellent discourse) from the 12th chapter of Deuteronomy, v. 5, was preached by his Lordship the Bishop'. The church ...is built of Whitby stone and stone from Caen, in Normandy, in the style of the time of Edward II., when the decorative manner began to be ingrafted on the plainer English Gothic of the earlier ages. The architects are Messrs. Scott and Moffatt, of whom it would be unjust not to say that they have rescued modern church building from the reproach of want of taste and architectural authority, which some recent edifices had brought upon it'. From "Illustrated London News", 1844, Vol V
