William Butterfield was a Gothic Revival architect who reinterpreted features of the original Gothic style, such as decorative floor tiles, in Victorian terms. He is best known for designing churches but also designed colleges and schools. He liked to use geometric shapes and patterns in his designs for buildings, brickwork and tiles. This is part of a drawing showing the design for the tiled pavements of the All Saints' Church in Harrow Weald.
