The Erection of Wilton Church
Wilton’s Church of St. Mary and St. Nicholas, also known as the “Italianate Church” was designed by Thomas Henry Wyatt and David Brandon and erected between 1841 and 1845. Built at the behest of Catherine Woronzow, the Dowager Countess of Pembroke (see no. 120) and her son, Sidney Herbert, who donated £20,000 towards the building, it was described as “one of the most sumptuous Anglican churches of the 1840’s and the prime example in England of the round arch style”. Catherine Woroznow was born in Russia and the influence of the Russian Orthodox style is strongly evident in the nave.Mosaics.
