The Church at Carrs Lane, Birmingham, UK

Denys Hinton & Partners
Date Built
1968 - 1971
Carrs Lane and Moor Street Queensway
The Carrs Lane Church was designed by Denys Hinton who was described in his Times obituary as, "... one of the pioneers of a Modernist form of church architecture that thrived in Britain from the early 1960s.”  The building received a Civic Trust Award in 1972. 

The Pevsner Architectural Guide for Birmingham describes it as, "...A tough piece, typical of its date ...  A mixture of red and plum Staffordshire brick, laid in Sussex bond.  Four blocks linked by a central glass foyer...  The chapel has blank brick gables split by V-shaped recesses with narrow strip windows."
