This short survey is dedicated to the memory of Charles Hodgson Fowler, a very significant churchman and architect whose reputation has lapsed into obscurity in recent times.
A pupil of George Gilbert Scott, Hodgson Fowler had an architectural practice in Durham city until his death. The bulk of his work was ecclesiastical and he designed several churches for the Durham coalfield in the 1860s. Examples of his work can be found in Co. Durham, Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire.
