This is one of Goodhart-Rendel’s finest buildings. The new lighting scheme, part of an overall re-ordering of the interior to celebrate its 50th anniversary, included a fine set of reproduction pendants, carefully recreated from photographs of the opening days of the Friary.

Carefully positioned spotlighting delicately highlights key liturgical and architectural features, giving a bright and airy feel to this fine building at the heart of Crawley.
