St Martins Birmingham tiles by Woodlanda
St Martins Birmingham tiles, a photo by Woodlanda on Flickr.

Paid a visit to Birmingham last week and went to St Martins, a Victorian church in the Bullring. As all good Victorian churches should, it featured a pavement of encaustic tiles.

These are by Minton, who pioneered the manufacturing process for this technique and continued to be a leading manufacturer.

The symbols on the tiles in the shields in the lower right represent the instruments of Christ’s passion.
