Watts Chapel near Guildford in Surrey – A golden terracotta girdle circles the interior with a series of flowers created by the village children. The altar gleaming in the gloom. More than 70 villagers worked alongside Mary Watts to create the tiles to help decorate the Chapel.
I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

Thanks Teresa. Yes, this is a splendid building.
What beautiful work – congratulations to all the children who participated. Perhaps they’ll be able to take their children one day to show them what they created.
This was built in 1904. I wonder if there are any relatives remaining from those original village helpers.
