This site is dedicated to Sir Walter Tapper, and the fabulous architecture that he left us.
Although not his only work, Tapper's churches are certainly what he is most famous for. By the time that he set up his own practice, he had been working for the office of G.F. Bodley and Thomas Garner for many years, and his experience in church buildings and their furnishings was great.
Tapper left Bodley in 1901. It is from this period that we see Tapper's own churches emerge. His main churches are listed below, with their approximate build dates.
