Bonus Gold

Golden Girdle

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.

  1. Really fabulous! The Watts Chapel is now a place I want to visit, thanks to your lovely photographs. I think it’s great that local people, especially children, were involved in creating the tiles. That will be something special for their families to remember down the generations.
