Iconic England: Bath Church Reflections
Colour fine art print of the spire of St. John's Church in the beautiful city of Bath, England, reflected in the River Avon.
St. John the Evangelist Roman Catholic Church is located on the South Parade in the south-east section of Bath City Centre.
The decorative Gothic-styled spire dominates the city's skyline, which has irked some people such as noted architectural critic Nikolaus Pevsner who accuses the church of being "a demonstrative proof of how intensely the Gothicists hated the Georgians of Bath". Christopher Martin takes a more measured view in his work on English Catholic churches, commenting "the stately interior is a good reflection of mid-Victorian taste".
The structure was designed and built between 1861-3 by Charles Francis Hansom (the brother of J. A. Hansom, the creator of the Hansom cab). The walls are of Bath stone. The church's 222 foot (68 metre) spire was added by Hansom in 1867.
