The Free Church
TL 2232 9/82
1923 by B Parker. Classical style with Greek cross plan form. Welsh slate
roofs. Brown brick with red brick dressings and wooden modillion cornice
carried round the open pediments of the 4 arms of the building. Architraved
sash windows with flat gauged brick arches, dressings and glazing bars. Main
east front with 3-bay arcaded entrance approached by steps. This is the most
important of the post World War I buildings in Letchworth. Represents a radical
change in style and materials from the informal Arts and Crafts idiom to a
more formal classicism.
