Summary Description

Fleet All Saints was commissioned by Charles Edward Lefroy as a memorial to his wife, and completed by his-father in law after Lefroy’s own death in 1862. The architect was WIlliam Burges, who had links to the family, and Fleet was one of his earliest completed ecclesiastical projects. It incorporated the geometrical shapes and bold colours that became a feature of his church designs, but is unusual for Burges’s use of structural colouration, in the form of painted brickwork.
