St Nicholas Church Lower Oddington Gloucestershire
Sezincote House Moreton-in-Marsh Gloucestershire

Tuesday 30 June 2020

 

St Nicholas Church, well known for its magnificent wall paintings, possesses one of the most notable representations of The Last Judgement now surviving.  The small church is a 400 metre walk from the beautiful village of Lower Oddington.  The coach will park next door to The Fox pub where we shall have coffee on arrival and lunch after visiting the church.

Afternoon visit to Sezincote House built in 1805 for Colonel John Cockerell, a grandson of diarist Samuel Pepys' nephew, who returned from India in 1795 after making his fortune with The East India Company. It is a notable example of Neo-Mughal construction and a mixture of Hindu and Muslim architecture, but the interior is purely classical.  Visited by the Prince Regent in 1807 and influenced  his plans for the Royal Pavilion in Brighton. Sir Cyril Kleinwort bought the estate in 1944, after which it was extensively restored, and his grandson Edward Peake and his wife Camilla currently live there.
