6/47 Church of St. Chad
Chapel of Ease. 1842-3 by Scott & Moffatt for the Sneyd Family (the porch
slightly later). White sandstone ashlar, steeply pitched tiled roof
on corbelled eaves with verge parapets and gabled bellcote to west.
Early English style, single unit plan (as Pevsner artfully suggests it is
rather a chancel without a nave than vice versa). Four bays divided
by 2-stage buttresses, diagonal at angles; lancet windows on raised
string; east end has 3 lancets with trefoiled heads stepped in height,
two on west with circular window over; small gabled west porch with labelled
pointed entrance. Interior extremely chaste and well finished; corbels
bear arch-braced and collared trusses, rafters and boarding exposed.
Font unusually placed in the aisle at the west end. A stone bowl on
columns. Glass by Wailes (east window) and Burlison and Grylls.
B.O.E., p. 134.
