Church. 1876-7. By H. Lloyd for James Heap. Rock-faced stone
with white stone dressings and fishscale slate roof. Nave
with clerestory, aisles, transepts, south-west tower and a
chancel. Gothic revival. 5-bay nave and aisles with
projecting plinth and weathered buttresses. Each bay has
paired lights with Geometrical tracery and hoodmould in the
aisles and two paired clerestory lights with cusped heads.
4-light transept windows. Coped gables with kneelers and
cross finials. Chancel flanked by vestry and organ chamber
has 5-light east window. The 4-stage tower has diagonal
gableted buttresses topped by crocketed pinnacles, a
crocketed triangular hoodmould above the door, an arcade of
cusped lights at the first stage, a circular opening at the
second, and paired belfry lights. The broach spire which has
lucarnes and a weather-cock is set back behind an enriched
parapet. Interior: Double-chamfered nave arcade on circular
columns with naturalistic capitals and moulded bases. The
tall transept arches are flanked by small secondary arches.
Alternating arch-braced and tie-beam roof trusses. Blind
arcading to sanctuary. Stone font and pulpit. Stained glass.
Timber fittings. The church is a very close copy of Holy
Trinity Church Western Super Mare (Lloyd 1861). It takes
advantage of its dominating site and starkly contrasting
materials to produce a distinctive and imposing building.
