Our cover illustration shows the West Front of St Swithun's, Alington, Bridport. Built in the 1820s in a severe Doric style, the façade of St Swithun's is enlivened by a recently restored cupola which adds a slightly exotic touch. The interior, once a plain preaching box with west gallery, is now finely appointed for Catholic worship. The recent extension to the East, including a small parish hall and vestries has been done tastefully and sympathetically
