Blackmoor: St Matthew
Red roofed tower
Extract from WH Hudson's 'Hampshire Days' (written in 1903):"The tall, square tower of Blackmoor, of white stone roofed with red tiles, rises amid the pines of Wolmer Forest, simple and beautiful in shape, and gives a touch of grace and grateful colour to that darker, austere nature. From every point of view it is a pleasure to the eye, and because of its enduring beauty the memory of the man who raised it is like a perfume in the wilderness."
Built in 1868, the church was designed by Alfred Waterhouse who also designed the Natural History Museum in London.
