Listing Text

Church of St Joseph's
SU 8650 5/58
Roman Catholic 1912/13, by George Drysdale. Wedge-shaped plan, with a rounded
(east) end at the junction of Queen's Road with Edward Street. High flank
walls pierced by a doorway on each street (at different levels) with windows
above which provide clerestory lighting; a bell-turret is prominent by
virtue of the ground falling to the east. Inside, the church is a basilica
with an impressive character, richly textured and complete with original
furnishings. Externally, everything is in brick-work, with upper levels
of dark brindle, and the flank walling in brindle-banded red.
