The "Charlotte Bronte of wood and stone"

Heritage England has a current blog post on women architects. Click here

Sara Losh in particular caught my attention with her links to regions in Northern England that interest me because of my own family history, but I was also impressed with the extraordinarily beautiful arts and crafts style interior of the church associated with her, being St Mary's at Wreay, Cumbria

Jenny Uglow has written a book about her, The Pinecone, and I look forward to reading it to learn more about this woman described on the cover as "... an individual genius, a Charlotte Bronte of wood and stone"
