St Richard's at night


Architecturally St Richard's in Ashburnham Road is one of the most interesting buildings in Ham thanks to its star-shape and its many-pointed roof. The roof rises on three of the six points of the star and the extra space beneath is filled with stained glass.

This is more obvious, and more dramatic, at night when the light inside the church highlights both the shape and the colour of the glass.
