1-11-66 Saint Luke


Parish Church, Cll, C13, 1854 restoration and rebuilding by
George Place; 1926 alteration and addition by H.G. Gamble,
unfinished; Coursed rubble ironstone, ashlar dressings, red
brick, slate roofs with stone coped gables. Nave, south aisle
and porch, south chapel, chancel, vestry, organ chamber. The
south aisle is the original nave and has a gabled roof which
terminates in a western gabled ashlar C19 bellcote with twin
openings. The west end of the aisle has 2 stepped buttresses
and 2 tall C19 lancets; in the return on the north side of the
aisle is a carved C13 gravestone built into the wall. The west
end of the nave is in brick and has 2 C20 lancets. The vestry
is in ironstone and has a C20 lancet and a C20 Tudor style door
opening. The vestry and organ chamber were obviously intended
to be joined to form a north aisle but this has been left
unfinished and the temporary walls are in brick, toothed out to
take an ironstone extension. The north side of the nave has 2
three light C20 windows in perpendicular style. The organ
chamber has a C20 lancet, a large opening, blocked by brick, and
a C20 Tudor door opening. The east end is in brickwork, the
flanking walls are in ironstone, again toothed out showing that
the nave was intended to be extended. The east window is a C20
5 light in Perpendicular style. The east window of the south
chapel is C19 3 light and the south side has a 2 light window, a
door and a lancet, all in the Early English style. The south
aisle has 2 C19 two light window and a single lancet. The C19
south porch leads to the Saxo Norman south door, possibly reset
during the 1854 restoration; it is very low with plain imposts,
slightly chamfered at their lower edge and has a semi circular
arch with crudely cut tympanum. The interior; the 3 bay south
arcade has C20 octagonal columns. The nave is entirely plain,
and all fittings are C19 or C20. In the west end of the south
aisle is a C13 capital inverted and set into the wall, used
originally as a font. The hexagonal font is now a C20
reconstruction using some C12 fragments of a circular tub with
cable moulding round the top. The south chapel walls are
painted with stencil decoration and texts. The stained glass at
the east end dates from 1893. In the vestry are 5 wall tablets
to the Dixon family dating from late C18 to early C19.
