All Saints Gostwyck

All Saints, Gostwyck, was contstructed in 1921 by the Dangar Family in memory of Clive Collingwood Dangar who died in 1918 in WW1. The bricks for the chapel were made and fired on Gostwyck Station. Services are held here on the first Sunday of each month.

The chapel stands at the junction of three magnificent Elm avenues. The one in the background is a private road that leads to Gostwyck Station and the home of the Dangar family.
The Chapel is covered in Virginia Creeper and in Autumn it is a popular location for photographers for the green/yellow of the elms and the scarlet of the creeper covered church.


  1. I would not have picked that church being in Australia. Wow. Wonderful pictures.

  2. What a great description of Autumn colour ... now you are going to have to go back there in Autumn and show us. In the meanwhile the winter shot is just plain lovely.

  3. What a beautiful church, amazing pictures! Thanks for sharing :) A place I will have to check out sometime.

  4. I love your composition here in the second, it certainly would look sensational in Autumn!

  5. I adore this church and have visited it in various times of the year...I would love to see it in it various 'clothes' if you get a chance to do it...I never knew it's history, so thank you for that. You keep me in touch with what was my home area...

  6. The man that the Chapel commemorates (Major Clive Collingwood DANGAR) died in Melbourne on the 4th July 1918 after his return to Australia for medical reasons . He is buried in Sydney, NSW. (grave No53, Church of England Vault section, of the Waverley General Cemetery). He had taken a ''Commission'' in the Imperial British Army (13th Hussars) but was attached to the 3rd Light Horse Brigade Headquarters. He received the MILITARY CROSS and was MENTIONED-IN-DESPACHES.
