St. Peter’s, Watford & St. Matthew’s, Oxhey

July 23, 2015

St. Peter’s, Bushey Mill Lane, Watford

DSCN0652There are quite a number of Anglican churches in the Watford area, most of them seem to be closed mid week.  I haven’t listed them all on this site but one or two will serve as examples.

St. Peter’s is one. It is an interesting 1960’s design with a lovely window which was made at Buckfast Abbey. It isn’t open and the web site, which contains much of interest (see https://stpeterschurchwatford.wordpress.com/) , doesn’t give any details of if it is ever open.

Another example is:-

St. Matthew’s, Oxhey

DSCN0656St. Matthew’s is a huge building which is very prominent. This was locked and doesn’t ever appear to be open. The website is at http://www.stmatthewsoxhey.org.uk/index.html and this does give visitor information but this only appears to be for Sunday visitors. The picture isn’t great it was difficult to get a good one as the sun was wrong!

Both are a wasted opportunity really and I am surprised that St. Matthew’s isn’t open
