Video: Tour the Church of Our Lady and St Alphege in Bath
The Church of Our Lady and St Alphege on Oldfield Lane, in Bath, was built in the 1920s to serve the Catholic population on the southern side of the city. You can find out more about its history and architecture by going on our tour.
The church was opened in 1929, initially as a chapel of ease. It was not consecrated until 1954, when the church was finally finished and paid for.
The design, by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott, was for a church of the Roman basilica type, closely resembling the Church of St Maria in Cosmedin in Rome.
Built from Bath stone, it was designed to seat a congregation of 400.
