3/43 Church of All Saints
1915, by Temple Moore. Generally of perpendicular style; nave and aisles of 4
bays with westward ½ bay with aisle ends screened off as porches. Chancel of
4 bays (narrowing eastwards) in north aisle extended as an eastern chapel, and
south side having an aisle corridor with access to vestries. Above the aisle on
the south side of the western bay of the chancel is a massive tower. The steep
red tile roof continues across nave and chancel but the aisle roofs are of low
pitched slate. Walling in Bath stone, irregularly coursed ashlar, with prominent
end buttresses, cill band to aisles, and plinth. The east and west windows are
large with decorated tracery; the large clerestory windows have single tracery
within triangular heads, aisles and vestry have small coupled lights. The tower
is a prominent feature, with plain walling and small openings, a ½ octagonal stair
turret, crenellated parapet and a shingle-covered pyramid roof in 2 stages. Within,
the nave and chancel have delicate mouldings, but the aisles have coupled windows
above brick walling (with arched recesses) set within coupled arches with shorter
interior curves resting on bold brackets. The easternmost chancel bay is separated
by a stone altar screen with a small doorway on each side, with the upper part
masked by wooden panelling within an arcade (of 13 units), painted with figures
of Christ and the 12 Apostles. The church is complete, with wrought-iron screens,
chair stalls, east and side chapels and a font. The ceiling is barrel-vaulted
in timber, with panels, the bays being marked by tie-beams on curved brackets.
