GV II

Anglican church. 1885 by Alexander Dick Gough, enlarged, including the rebuilding of the chancel, in 1871 by Edwin Clare. Kentish ragstone in random rubble with Bath stone dressings, roofs of Welsh slate. Chancel, transepts, nave, north and south aisles, tower in the angle of the nave and south transept, west narthex porch. Narthex porch with arcaded parapet. Nave of four-and-a-half bays; south aisle of two-and-a-half bays under a lean-to roof, the three-light windows with panel tracery and hoodmoulds with carved heads as label stops, as throughout the church. The clerestory windows are sexfoiled spherical triangles modified to a flat base and set within recessed flat-arched panels. Tower of four stages with setback buttresses rising through three stages, and two-light openings in the belfry. Carved figures with scrolls at the corners. Broach spire with lucarnes to the cardinal directions. North aisle of four bays under its own gabled roof, with three-light windows with panel tracery between buttresses and an upper range of windows consisting of cusped heads within flat-arched moulded panels. South and north transepts have six-light windows with panel tracery and spherical triangle above; gabled porch to north transept, flanked by small single-storey C20 additions. Chancel of three bays with three-light windows with panel tracery between buttresses, the lower part of the first window to the north blocked by the single-storey, cross-gabled vestry. East window of five lights with Geometrical tracery and spherical triangle above. INTERIOR: : west gallery with arcade now filled in; nave arcade, also now filled in on both sides, of three bays on the north with corbelled and shafted responds, and stiff-leaf capitals, and of two bays on the south, with the same corbel-shafts and capitals, but the third bay occupied by the elaborate organ case and gallery. Clerestory windows are in modified spherical triangles set under a segmental pointed arch. North transept partly partitioned off in connection with school use. Nave roof carried on corbelled wall-shafts; the roof to the nave and transepts is of the queen-post type, with arched braces above the tie-beam; two additional trusses run diagonally across the crossing, creating a climax at that point. Multi-moulded chancel arch with shafts on corbels; chancel windows to north and south under ogee mouldings; cusped blank arcading to the east wall with panels of encaustic tiles enclosing painted texts; roof of unusual braced collar design with circular 'braces' above the collar-beam. The interior of the church has been painted throughout, the floor covered by carpet, and all pews removed, leaving only the chancel stalls.
