Church of the Transfiguration Canford Cliffs  

The Church of the Transfiguration is one of the youngest ecclesiastical buildings in the county, having been built during 1962-5 to a design by Lionel Gregory, who was also responsible for an interesting industrial unit in the nearby Nuffield Industrial estate.

When Sir Nikolaus Pevsner visited the church, which cannot have been long after it was built, he observed that it was .."the exact ecclesiastical equivalent of Dunromin and Thistledo!" It is certainly true that the walls are clad in crazy-paved walling and the dormers are saw-toothed, but this was a little unfair.
