8/49 Church of St.Thomas
- II

Roman Catholic church, dated 1794, although facade said to be of 1835
(Pevsner). Rendered with sandstone dressings and slate roof. Facade has
clasping pilasters and cornice with blocking course and central cross. 3
keyed lunette windows spring from a band and light the gallery. A central
single-storey ashlar porch has a moulded pediment and a doorway with round
head, keystone, and impost band. The side windows have plain stone
surrounds with round heads and impost band and now have later C19 Venetian
tracery. Inside the porch there is an inner doorway with an architrave and
a Latin inscription below a pediment. An oval plaque is inscribed:
'MDCCXCIV'. A west gallery is carried on fluted columns. At the east
attached marbled Corinthian columns support an entablature above which is
a decorated cove. This returns on both the north and south walls. In the
vestibule under the gallery is a painted Water stoup whose upper part
appears to be C17. and is inscribed: 'AW 1699'.
