4/12 Christchurch


Parish church. 1857, by William White, damaged by lightning 1975, with
consequent restoration, including a new roof. Single cell with
½-octagon apse, north and south porches, and double-bellcote at the west
end. Flint walls with brick dressings; thin horizontal bands, quoins,
separate voussoirs to pointed arches, buttresses and plinth. The traceried
parts and mullions of the window are of stone; lancets with sharply-
pointed cusping, of 1, 2 and 4 lights, the largest with a hood-mould. The
roof of 1976 is of low pitch, of corrugated metal: a fragment of the
original tile roof remains above the west gable, linked to the bell-turret,
which is supported by 2 tapered buttresses, enclosing a coupled west
window. Gabled porches with buttresses and pointed arches with patterned
voussoirs. The rear third of the interior retains its original yellow
brick walls with red banding and dado, and a C20 glazed screen separates this
from the main church, which has plastered walls, and late C20 furnishings.
