It all started with a fire in a church...

Nelly's Nursery

In June 2000 a fire raged through All Saints Church in Lambeth destroying the interior. The outside structure was still sound however, and Nelly’s Nursery was invited to be a part of the rebuilding. The result is stunningly beautiful. What struck me as I walked in was the warm brick walls and the height of the ceiling. In other structures such a high ceiling might feel overbearing, but at Nelly’s Nursery it says “this is a place of beauty”. Light streams in from the tall Gothic arched windows. The natural wood furniture complements the rich tones of the interior brickwork.
