St. Mark the Evangelist, Swindon, Wiltshire, England


The church of St. Mark the Evangelist is on the edge of the area known locally as the Railway Village.  It was built for the religious benefit of people who came to Swindon to work in the new Railway Workshop set up by Isambard K. Brunel and Daniel Gooch.  These workers lived in the Railway Village which is just a short distance to the Works.  St. Marks (as it is known) has the Works on one side of it (which is now a shopping mall), and Faringdon Road Park on the other, with the housing and other work related buildings close by.

The building is highly decorated - it abounds with small stone carvings.  It is also difficult to photograph due to it being surrounded by trees. Most of these photographs were taken in early spring before the trees have grown their new leaves in order that we can see the building.
