TQ 32 SW HAYWARDS HEATH COLWELL ROAD
4/114 Chapel of St Francis'
11.10.85 Hospital
GV II
Chapel of former lunatic asylum, now hospital. 1859 by H E Kendall junior in
a vigorous Lombardo-Venetian style. Yellow brick with red brick decoration
some stone dressings and slate roof. Wide 3 bay nave with aisles, short sanctuary
and slender north eastern campanile. Plinth, banding, deep pseudo-entablature
with small pedimented kneelers to gables. Windows to the 3 bays of the aisles
have 2 lights and quatrefoils to the heads; radiating brickwork giving an extrados
more acute than the intrados. Trefoil-headed doorways. Campanile has similar
decoration and windows, a heavy cornice and a pyramidal roof. Inside, the
arcade is unmoulded above the capital, but has paired columns with foliated
capitals and half-column responds. Shallow-pitched roof with cusped queen post
construction and cusped arched braces springing from corbels. Apse at west
end, barrel-vaulted sanctuary at east end. An original and successful design
which complements the more severe main block of the hospital (qv).
