Details

1. NEWTOWN STREET SD 80 SW

SP/692 Heaton Park Congregational Church - II 2. Congregational church. 1881 by Alfred Waterhouse. Red brick with pressed brick and stone dressings, steeply pitched slate roofs. Gothic Revival. School room/hall on ground floor, church above. Separately-roofed buttressed corner tower contains entrance, a twin doorway in arched opening, with traceried tympanum and hood-mould. Lancet stairlights leading up to church, which has similar lancets and a large 4-light plate-traceried arched window in the gable end. Triplets of little lancets in both main gable and tower, similar in form but differing in detail. Louvre to tower roof ridge with decorative ironwork. Ground floor hall windows square headed (though with expressed relieving arches) with mullions and transoms. Stained glass to church. Original staircases, doors and interior fittings intact. A good and complete example of the work of Waterhouse, economically planned and sensitively detailed.
