Notes NOTES: Designs for a new church in Lamerton parish were produced by Wightwick between 1844 and 1850 when they were rejected by the diocese. New plans were prepared by Wightwick and the church was finally built (1856-1857). The church as built does not correspond to these drawings so it appears these are for the rejected scheme. This design is one of a number of drawings bound into five volumes entitled 'Architectural works of George Wightwick', made between 1832 and 1850. Wightwick instructed his articled pupils to make this detailed set of retrospective drawings to illustrate every building of importance he had designed. The drawings were intended to serve both as a record of Wightwick's completed buildings and as a method of conveying to his students the design process from initial working design to finished structure.
