6/375 Church of St Stephen
II
Church. c.1870. Uncoursed killas rubble with granite dressings, Delabole
slate roofs with ornamental slate verges and red ridging tiles. Cruciform
plan with shallow transepts and apsidal chancel, plus a porch at the
west end of the south side and a small vestry in the angle of the chancel
and north transept. Early English style. Plinth, diagonal buttresses
with offsets. The low gabled porch has diagonal buttresses, 2-centred
arched outer and inner doorways, the outer chamfered in 2 orders with
pyramid stops, the inner with a plank door furnished with elaborate
hinges, a small lancet window in each side wall, and a steeply-pitched
roof with ornamental slate verge and cockscomb ridging riles. The nave
has 3 lancets on the wouth side and 4 on the north side, and at the
west end 2 similar lancets and an oculus above, and a gable bellcote
(C20 flat-roofed single-storey addition at this end not of special interest).
The short transepts each have a 2-centred arched 3-light window with
a cinquefoil in the head, the north transept has a gable chimney to
the left of the apex, and the small gabled vestry to the left has a
2-light window; the semi-circular chancel has 3 lancets like those of
the nave. Most of these windows have original latticed glazing and
ferramenta, except where replaced by coloured memorial glass. Interior
not inspected, but unlikely to have been altered significantly.
