Sitter in 1 portrait
An architect, Butterfield's High Anglican religious beliefs were reflected in his work. All Saint's Margaret Street, London, marked a turning point both in Butterfield's career and in ecclesiastical architecture in Britain. The 1850s and 1860s saw further work on churches, buildings at Rugby School, Balliol and Keble Colleges, Oxford. His most distinguished late work was the remodelling and extension of the Chanter's House, Ottery St Mary, Devon, the home of his great friend, John Duke Coleridge.
