with shaft-rings and simplified capitals. Crossing arches similar, but clustered
columns on foliage corbels. North aisle with transverse half-arches as buttresses,
south aisle with gables at right-angles. Nave roof boarded, with big kingposts.
East end all by Pilkington: short chancel, with east wall panelled in marble
as background for reredos by P P Pugin, with 3 spirelets over statues, 8 smaller
niches. Altar rail of strange Renaissance design (? Clutton): openwork brass
foliage, with white marble portrait medallions of Jesuit saints, in shallow bow.
North chapel with tieceron vault and Spanish Gothic altar of the Assumption (192l-2).
South chapel, wooden vault, another canopied reveals. Externally, tower by Clutton:
buff brick and stone with straight-headed transomed and traceried belfry windows,
cornice with globules and pyramid spire of banded slate. Remainder by Pilkington,
in rock-faced Portland stone, except for Clutton's aisle gables (Perpendicular
tracery). Windowless gable to chancel with canopied niches, on high basement
