2/128 Church of St. Mary Magdalene



Parish Church. 1678 by Robert Hooke for Dr. Busby, headmaster of
Westminster School. W. tower, nave and C19 apse. Red brick with stone
dressings, plinth coping, chamfered quoins, architraves and cills
to windows, moulded cornices. Copper roofs. The tower has two main
stages, the upper with stone Corinthian pilasters at angles supporting
entablature and parapet with stone pineapples on plinths at corners,
each face has a tall arched upper window over a smaller segmental headed
window. The lower stage has chamferedquoins and large recessed arched
doorway on ground floor approached by a flight of semi-circular stone
steps and a round window above the doorway. Flanking the tower are one
storey sections with window on outer face and parapet on W. side swept
up to tower with pineapple on outer corner. The nave is pedimented at E.
end with bull's eye window in tympanum and has three tall arched
windows on N. and S. sides. The apse, added in 1862, is of similar
materials and has three similar windows. The interior has elaborate
plaster decoration, a panelled dado and pews, the floor of the nave has
a diagonal pattern of white stone and black tiles. The contemporary pulpit
on the S. side of the nave has been slightly altered and the reading desk
is supported on an elaborate panel of wrought iron. The organ case is
probably contemporary. The font consists of a bowl of white marble carved
with cherubs heads, and drapery standing on a green Irish marble baluster and an
ogee shaped wooden cover carved with swags of fruit and flowers with a
vase finial.
RCHM II. p.330. MON.1.
