Blampied – St Josephs - Catholic - Victoria - 1869

While out for a drive to the village of Daylesford we passed this gorgeous church, of course Bucko knew we had to turn around so I could take a few photograph.  The building is simply stunning. 

"A prominently-sited bluestone church allegedly designed by E Shephardson, a school teacher at Eganstown, near Daylesford and built between 1869 and 1874. The design derives from St Peter's Daylesford, but with the introduction of different window tracery and a double-gabled sacristy. The building comprises a five-bay nave, chancel and sacristy and has a spacious interior with several stained glass windows."
