2/20 Church of St Andrew
Church. 1851. By E B Lamb for Lady Frankland. Coursed gritstone rubble
and ashlar, graduated stone slate roof. 3-bay nave, north aisle with tower
and porch grouped at the west end, 3-bay chancel. Built on a steep slope,
in an Early English style. Flight of 7 stone steps to studded board door of
porch with scrolled hinges in chamfered pointed arch below deep pitched roof
with gable copings. Tower of 2 storeys with tall lancet belfry windows,
stepped angle buttresses, deep corbelled eaves to pyramidal spire with small
lucarnes and finial. North aisle: 3 paired trefoil-headed windows; east
window of 3 trefoil-headed lancets, south side as north aisle, west end: 2
trefoil-headed lancets divided by a stepped buttress. Wide gable copings
and cross finials to apex of gables. Interior: north aisle roof supported
on deeply chamfered ashlar pillar with corbels carrying the timberwork of
nave and aisle roof. Nave roof of a hammer-beam type with king posts, the
chancel roof has an arch braced truss. Porch inner door has studs and
scroll hinges as the door to left into the tower. The altar rail and pulpit
are C17 oak, the rail balusters finely carved with alternate fluted columns.
The church is typical of the work of E B Lamb (1806-69), having a low
contour and heaviness of effect with complicated timber roof structure also
seen at St Mary's Church, Gospel Oak, London (1862-65) and St Mary's
Addiscombe, Surrey (1868). R Dixon and S Muthesius, Victorian Architecture,
1978, pp 195-196.
