(Formerly Listed as:
Church of St Jude)


Anglican church. 1885 by Alexander Dick Gough, enlarged,
including the rebuilding of the chancel, in 1871 by Edwin
Clare. Kentish ragstone in random rubble with Bath stone
dressings, roofs of Welsh slate. Chancel, transepts, nave,
north and south aisles, tower in the angle of the nave and
south transept, west narthex porch. Narthex porch with arcaded
parapet. Nave of four-and-a-half bays; south aisle of
two-and-a-half bays under a lean-to roof, the three-light
windows with panel tracery and hoodmoulds with carved heads as
label stops, as throughout the church. The clerestory windows
are sexfoiled spherical triangles modified to a flat base and
set within recessed flat-arched panels. Tower of four stages
with setback buttresses rising through three stages, and
two-light openings in the belfry. Carved figures with scrolls
at the corners. Broach spire with lucarnes to the cardinal
directions. North aisle of four bays under its own gabled
roof, with three-light windows with panel tracery between
buttresses and an upper range of windows consisting of cusped
heads within flat-arched moulded panels. South and north
transepts have six-light windows with panel tracery and
spherical triangle above; gabled porch to north transept,
flanked by small single-storey C20 additions. Chancel of three
bays with three-light windows with panel tracery between
buttresses, the lower part of the first window to the north
blocked by the single-storey, cross-gabled vestry. East window
of five lights with Geometrical tracery and spherical triangle
INTERIOR: : west gallery with arcade now filled in; nave
arcade, also now filled in on both sides, of three bays on the
north with corbelled and shafted responds, and stiff-leaf
capitals, and of two bays on the south, with the same
corbel-shafts and capitals, but the third bay occupied by the
elaborate organ case and gallery. Clerestory windows are in
modified spherical triangles set under a segmental pointed
arch. North transept partly partitioned off in connection with
school use. Nave roof carried on corbelled wall-shafts; the
roof to the nave and transepts is of the queen-post type, with
arched braces above the tie-beam; two additional trusses run
diagonally across the crossing, creating a climax at that
point. Multi-moulded chancel arch with shafts on corbels;
chancel windows to north and south under ogee mouldings;
cusped blank arcading to the east wall with panels of
encaustic tiles enclosing painted texts; roof of unusual
braced collar design with circular 'braces' above the
collar-beam. The interior of the church has been painted
throughout, the floor covered by carpet, and all pews removed,
leaving only the chancel stalls.
