This guided walk will end with a tour of the Morris & Co. stained glass at All Saints’ Church Putney. The windows are the most extensive glazing scheme by Morris & Co. in any London church. All Saints’ was a collaboration between the architect George Street (1824-81), Edward Burne-Jones (1833-98) and William Morris (1834-96). The result was a fine example of a late Victorian Arts and Crafts church, with decoratively painted ceilings and beautiful stained glass windows.

In the 1850s, George Street was Morris’s first architectural mentor. Street’s most recognisable building is probably the Royal Courts of Justice in the Strand in London. This is Street’s only London church with stained glass by Morris & Co. The church was built 1873-74, at the time Morris was living at Kelmscott House, Hammersmith, and it was very likely that he would have walked to the church and taken a close interest in the glazing. Burne-Jones lived in Fulham, so would have been more directly involved in the windows than was possible for windows in distant locations.

The walk, which will last around one hour, will be led and narrated by Peter Walker, a member of the Society and keen historian of William Morris.
