2/31 Christ Church

Parish church. 1897 by C. Hodgson Fowler. Ashlar with Welsh slate roof.
Late Perpendicular style. Nave and chancel with south porch and north vestry.

3-bay nave has porch in left bay and two 3-light windows with 4-centred heads
to lights. Sill string.

large buttress with 3 offsets. The chancel windows are set slightly higher
than the nave windows. East end blank except for recessed panel with a cross
and 4 small crosses between the arms.

Gabled roof with flat coping, kneelers and cross finials. The chancel eaves

a very short battered tower with slate-hung lower portion, louvred timber bell
stage and spirelet with swept, overhanging eaves.

Interior: Tripartite screen with Tudor-arched openings. Wooden canted chancel
arch and canted wooden barrel-vaulted ceilings. Interior gains much of its
impact from its painted colour scheme.

South window of 1901 with figures of St. Aidan, St. Gregory and St. Oswald.

Font, from the old church, C12 bowl on C19 stem; one figure remains beneath a
round arch, more have worn away. In nave north wall a C14 grave cover with
foliated cross. In the corner of the nave a small medieval headstone with an
incised cross.
