Church. Before 1899 by J L Pearson in a Neo-Perpendicular style, finished later in a truncated way. Knapped flint with Bath struts, quoins, weathering bands, cornices and dressings. Plain tiled roofs. Chancel of red brick with tiled roofs. The Pearson part consists of nave with north and south aisles and south porch. The chancel with north vestry was added at a later date and does not conform to the Pearson plan. West front with two deep stepped buttresses flanking nave, rising before octagonal piers crowned by traceried coronets with pinnacles. Tall west window with Perpendicular-style tracery over which is panelling of stone and knapped flint in chequer-board fashion. West windows of aisles also with Neo-Perpendicular tracery. Stepped diagonal buttresses at corners of aisles, 4-bay aisles, two-bays to south replaced by porch and 1 bay to north by entrance to unbuilt tower. All windows with Perpendicular-style tracery. South porch of two storeys with parvis chamber over; double hollow-chamfered arch-way in surround with moulded spandrels, topped by three niches with ogee hoods with pinnacles & crockets inset into which are three statues. Stepped angle buttresses flanking. North side has archway, possibly linking church to unbuilt free stand- ing tower, bricked up below and with the keying for walls and roof surrounding. Chancel of red brick with two roof levels and rather domestic fenestration. Interior: 4 bay arcades with roll - and keel-moulded arches and quatrefoil keel- moulded piers. Similar arches leading from aisles into proposed transeptal chapels, of which that to south only partly built. Plain pointed chancel arch leading into plain chancel with rafter roof. Other roofs of collar-purlin type with moulded braces on lowered corbels; moulded purlins. Fittings:Late C19 Perpendicular-style pulpit. Very elaborate High Victorian Gothic stone font with bowl on wide stem surrounded by pink marble columns supporting pointed arches with cusping and pink marble shafts to moulded band. All carving in stiff-leaf style. By William Butterfield and brought, as was the seating, from St John, Chipping Barnet. All other fittings of late C19 or early C20 date. BOE, HERTFORDSHIRE, 258.
