About this Event:

Sarah Losh built Wreay Church in Cumbria in 1842. It is one of the most unusual and inspiring churches of the Victorian era. Biographer Jenny Uglow uncovers the incredible story behind the church and its builder. Losh was born into a family of wealthy Cumbrian industrialists and had a zest for progress and love of the past. She let her imagination flow in the church, which includes carvings of ammonites, scarabs and poppies; an arrow piercing the wall; a tortoise gargoyle launching itself into the air; and her signature pinecones everywhere. The Pinecone is also the story of the Losh family, friends of Wordsworth and Coleridge, and a story of village life of the time.

Uglow grew up in Cumbria. Her works include award-winning biographies of Elizabeth Gaskell and William Hogarth. Nature’s Engraver: A Life of Thomas Bewick won the National Arts Writers Award 2007 and A Gambling man: Charles II and the Restoration was shortlisted for the Samuel Johnson Prize 2010.
