Details

HELSBY C.P. CHESTER ROAD SJ 47 NE (South Side) 1/117 Church of St Paul. II Church 1868-70 by John Douglas, south aisle (and transept?) added 1909 by Douglas and Minshull. Coursed rock-faced yellow sandstone; graded green Westmorland slate roofs. Nave with towerless slate west spire; catslide roof of shallower pitch over south aisle; transepts; apsidal chancel. Paired lancets and very simple plate tracery. Externally the steep roofs, with the splay-footed octagonal spire seeming to float above two great bell-louvres around its base, are a powerful feature, architecturally very advanced. Interior. Nave of 5 bays; beam on octagonal stone piers carries simply-framed aisle roof; wide arch-braced nave roof; corbelled piers carry nave and chancel arches, very simple; chamfered unmoulded transept arches; lofty chancel roof with no principal rafters but hammer-posts to common rafters; deeply splayed embrasures; glass in porch, chancel and south transept. A satisfying interior.
