Would you like to kneel on the M4?

I just love church kneelers that refuse to conform to trad imagery or nice flowers.  Spotted these on our trip this weekend to churches in North and West London.  I especially like the crazy perspecitve on the bus, and the concept of an M4 kneeler is fab.   A really imaginative set— I get the feeling the working parties could have been quite fun…..(all from St Thomas the Apostle, Hanwell, 1934 by Edward Maufe– architect of Guildford Cathedral–a really beatutifully detailed II* church with a knitted model of itself inside–yes really– I’m hoping for some good images from C20’s star photographers–check out our Flickr site)
