(East Side)
Roman Catholic Church including Presbytery
SZ 5992 3/221


Built by Joseph Hansom 1844/46 with additions in the 1880's and 90's.
Coursed rubble with stone dressings. A highly unbalanced asymmetrical
composition in free Early English style. The gabled main body of the West
front partially cut off as is the gabled porch by a square tower with an
arcaded gallery and stumpy spire above. Additions to the North in similar
style with close set arcading and vertical eye shaped window on gable above.
The interior has unusually depressed arcade arches, two centred on vertical
pieces, with the normal two centred arches appearing much higher as drip
moulds. Adjoining to the East and reached through St Mary's Passage is
the presbytery, again a highly irregular elevation in coursed rubble with
stone dressings. Asymmetrically spaced gables, casement and sash windows
and a pointed first floor bay of two lights. A quatrefoil plaque bears the
date 1863.
