Chapel of St. Michael and All Angels..



One of the prettiest churches in Perth in my opinion is the Chapel of St. Michael, the Perth College chapel. Built in 1927 in the 'Perpendicular Gothic style' the tall brick walls and checkerboard design on the parapets and gable ends are tres visually appealing don't you think. Of course I don't even have to mention how much I love the tall arched windows! If you would like to take a peek inside the chapel, under the 'Explore Perth College' click here, menu to the bottom left, facilities, Chapel of St. Michael and guide yourself around this simply lovely chapel. Happy Friday, take care and stay safe.. p.s. can you imagine how pretty the creeper around the door to the chapel and the Agapanthus will be in spring and summer when they're flowering!

  4. Schöne Kirche die aus Backsteinen gebauten Kirchen haben für mich was besonderes,
    das ich einige Jahre bei der Herstellung von diesen Steinen bei uns beteiligt war.

  11. I find difficulty in taking pictures of large structures, getting them all in without spoiling the pic is hard. You did well. Lovely inside also.

  19. I normally think of a "Chapel" as being small and quaint. I may have to rethink. This one is huge and grand.
