Long Description:
Frederick Landeer Maur Griggs was born in Hitchin in 1876. He was a distinguished etcher, one of the first etchers to be elected to membership of the Royal Academy. In 1903 he settled at Dover’s House in Chipping Campden. He went on to create an Arts and Crafts house at New Dover’s House. He set up the Dover’s House Press.

The etching depicts the church before the South aisle was added by Sir George Gilbert Scott. Presumably the etching, dated 1900, is based on an earlier drawing. The etching is in the collection of the St Albans Museum.
