Whenever I am down in Knysna, which is quite often, I enjoy seeing so many stunning old buildings. St Georges is very photogenic and well worth the visit.

One can be forgiven for not noticing the two stone churches on the right hand side of the main road , when going through Knysna en route to Cape Town. This time though, we stopped off and visited this interesting historical site - all credit goes to the user-friendly website, which supplies both the history and a pictorial coverage of the first St George's church.
This small church is sited closer to the road than the newer, bigger one, but it has a unique charm and of course, it bears the signature stamp of its architect, Sophy Gray.
When the plans were drawn up, she made provision for the church to be enlarged if the congregation increased. The original church would then become the chancel of a larger building, and the western wall had an arch, which was built in, forming the exterior wall, which could be broken through once the new addition had been built.
Her plans came to nought, as at a later stage, a bigger church was built to the north of the first one, further upslope.
Nevertheless, Sophy's church is an attractive building and it was wonderful to see that the exposed roof trusses have not been hidden from view by a ceiling, but it is a great pity that restoration work on the stepped buttresses, particularly the NE one, has been so crudely done. Loved the quaint drip mouldings above the windows!
