- II

Anglican Church. 1866 by Ewan Christian. Squared sandstone, cream limestone
dressings, Welsh slate roof. A very firmly modelled apsidal design with quad-
rant side chapels, transept, deep south-west porch, large roof swept down over
aisle and round apsidal curves; bell turret over chancel. A very Trinitarian
design, inside and outside. All windows lancets with trefoil cusping, set
to string continuous with cills, at east end three sets of 3 lancets to quad-
rants, 5 lofty lancets to main apse. West end, triple lancet in plate tracery
with two quatrefoil oculi, and to south aisle triple lancet with two trefoil
oculi. Interior is unplastered, dressings alternating pink and cream limestone
to arches. three bay arcade, cylindrical columns with stiff leaf capitals,
nave roof pine boarded but plastered, with ribs, over apse and chancel. Quad-
rants contain vestry, left and sacristy, right. All original fittings includ-
ing pitch-pine pews, communion rail on decorative wrought-iron standards, organ
in north transept, and font left of porch door on entry. This is a good
example of an unspoilt Victorian church following "Ecclesiologist's" precepts,
in good condition at time of the survey.
