CHURCH OF ST LUKE
Anglican parish church. 1889: designed by John Eaton & Sons of Ashton-under-Lyne.
Red brick with stone and terracotta dressings and decorative detailing; Welsh slate
roof with red cresting tiles. PLAN: nave of six bays with narrow aisles (not
registered externally); internal transepts (that to N containing the organ);
uninterrupted single-bay chancel with no aisles, and polygonally apsed sanctuary. W.
narthex, W bellcote; S baptistry (W bay of nave); SE vestry. EXTERIOR. W. front,
a well-managed composition. 3-bay narthex with parapet and regular triple lancets
to each bay: central gable with coping; both ends of the narthex are canted with
principal entrance to right (depressed doorway arch with blank arcaded tympanum
under gable). At the angles (i.e. between W and canted faces of the narthex) are two
large buttresses which above the parapet become flying buttresses and connect with
the W wall of nave where they receive polygonal turrets, and flank the large 5-light
stepped lancet windows under superordinate arch with hood moulds. Nave with
sprocketted roof; side walls: each bay with double lancets and continuous
label/impost string course. Gabled transepts similarly treated. INTERIOR. Arcades
with continuous hood moulds over square-section piers with demi-shafts to E and W
only which support the inner order. Transverse arches to aisles set very low.
Large and impressive canted, boarded roof to nave; principal over chancel rest on
stone carbel shafts. Contemporary fittings of a high Victorian character with much
punched tracery to choir stalls, reading desk, and polygonal pulpit (the latter-
usually for the date - with Soundboard) altar table and reredos. Decorative tiling
A good example of a late - C19 church by a little-known architectural
practice that did, however, contribute considerably to the townscape of the Ashton
and environs, and was well versed in current architectural trends.
