GV II

Church. 1835-6. By Lewis Vulliamy for the Church Commissioners; enlarged in later C19; derelict in 1991 following fire damage; restored and converted into flats in 1993. Punch-dressed sandstone ashlar, slate roof (now with skylight windows). Early English style. Nave with west tower, chancel with north chapel and south vestry. EXTERIOR: the 3-stage tower, with clasping buttresses, offset-bands between the stages, and an embattled parapet with octagonal corner pinnacles, has paired 2-centred arched west doorways in a 2-centred blank arch, a clock-face at the 2nd stage with a diamond-shaped surround, and coupled lancet belfry windows with louvres. The wide unaisled 4-bay nave has a chamfered plinth, angle buttresses with tall pinnacles rising from the angles, simple buttresses between the bays with 2 offsets, a corbel-table to each bay, and tall coupled lancet windows with deep splayed reveals (now with only the remains of stained glass). The chancel, of 2 short bays, has coupled lancets in the sides and an east window of 3 stepped lancet lights in a 2-centred blank arch; and on the north side a gabled chapel with a circular window (tracery destroyed). INTERIOR remodelled, but formerly had 3-sided gallery on cast-iron columns, and an open-timbered roof.
