Cogan Old Church. THE SACRED EDIFICE VISITED BY LORD BUTE. A few days ago, St. Peter's Church (better known as Cogan Old Church), was visited by the Marquis of Bute, in company with Sir William Thomas Lewis and Messrs Corbett. It is the intention of the Marquis to erect a bronze and gilt Reredos in this church. The design is to display the Scriptural scene of the transfiguration, and will contain a figure of our Lord surrounded by a nimbus of glory, and accompanied by Moses and Elias. This structure will be unique, in fact, there is nothing like it in any r church of this neighbourhood, and probably not in England. Previous to the visit of Lord Bute skilled workmen from London, erected a facsimilie in wood of the proposed structure, which will be erected by his lordship in memory of the late Mr Corbett. The Rerdos will be of a most costly character, and will stand out from the east wall of the church at least 15 inches, so as not to interfere with the inspection by archeologists of the unique herring bone masonry of the east wall. Hia lordship also directed certain structural alterations in the floor of the church, which covers the remains of the celebrated Herberts, of Cogan Pill Hall, who were his lordship's ancestors, and this will complete the carefnl restoration of this ancient church which Lord Bute has made entirely at his own expense. It is expected that the Reredos will be completed in about 9 months.
