- II*

Chapel of ease. 1911 by Temple Moore. Finely random coursed, dressed
and squared stone; tiled roof; verge parapets. West tower, nave and
chancel combined, south porch and vestry to north. Decorated details
to a simple structure. Tower: small and square in plan of three stages
banded at plinth and bell chamber levels; crenellated parapets; chamfered
mullion two-light bell chamber opening and labelled 3-light pointed
west window. Nave and chancel: the division not apparent from the
exterior, of 5½ bays divided by large single stage buttresses banded
at cill and impost level of windows which are set high-up, pointed,
of 3 lights and have elaborate, mannered-mouchette tracery; large five-
light east window with similar tracery; pointed door set to south west
in a timber framed gabled porch; to complete the contrast the roof
of this is Westmorland slate and the timber brick-nogged. Vestry:
gabled of two storeys with a clasping chimney stack to right and single-
storey addition to left; pointed, two-light window to apex and labelled,
square-headed door to left of gable. The vestry almost competes with
the tower giving an unusual assymetrical style to the north elevation
and not detracting from the chaste severity of the remainder. Interior:
quadripartite ribbed stone vaulted roof of five bays with no break
between nave and chancel; moulded pointed arch to tower; deep window
reveals have miniature trefoiled ogee head (approx. 600mm high) ambulatory
openings which serve to duct heated air from concealed radiators.
Oak panelling up to window cill level brattished at head; piscina and
sedilia with moulded pointed arches; pulpit faced by three-sided oak
front with carved panels; font: marble, octagonal with trefoils in
panels and on concave octagonal stand; pews: substantial, simply cut
oak; screen: possibly a later addition in oak of 6 bays either side
of centre, brattished and crested top rail. B.O.E. p.94.
