Church. 1873-4 by Frederick J and Horace Francis. Flemish bond brown brick
with red brick bands and alternate voussoirs to arches; Portland stone windows,

Chancel has 5-light east window with trefoiled lights and cusped circles to
tracery, and double-gabled roof to north vestry which has hoodmoulds over
2-light windows and pointed-arched doorway. South chapel has offset buttresses
and hoodmoulds over 4-light east window (similar to chancel east window),
2-light south windows and pointed-arched west doorway and round west window with
circular tracery. Nave has bellcote with stone spirelet and 5-bay lean-tos to
aisles with offset buttresses and hoodmoulds over 3-light windows; hoodmoulds
over quatrefoil clerestory windows; 5-light west window with reticulated
tracery above lean-to narthex with linked hoodmould over lancet windows and
pointed-arched south and north doorways. Interior executed in similar poly-
chromatic brickwork; chancel has 2-bay north and south arcades with pointed
chamfered arches set on circular piers with richly-carved foliate capitals and
carved foliate corbels to pointed-arched braced roof. Hoodmould with head
corbels over tall chancel arch with richly-carved foliate capitals to engaged
shafts. Nave has 5-bay arcades with hoodmoulds with carved stops over chamfered
pointed arches over circular piers with moulded capitals; carved corbels to
similar pointed-arched roof. Stained glass east window of c.1880 by Heaton,
Butler and Bayne. A good example of a town church design, embodying the separa-
tion of elements in the Puginian tradition.
