Sacred Heart Church, St Michaels
Convent church. 1922/5; by W.C. Mangan. English bond fletton brick, with soldier courses and herring-bone patterns. Concrete interlocking tile roof with brick-coped gable ends. PLAN: Three naves at 45 degrees to each other, converging on single sanctuary with semi-circular apse; the central nave is for the nuns, the south nave for the parishioners, and the north nave was for the convent children. Byzantine style. EXTERIOR: The .naves have alternating 3-light and single-light round-headed windows, the arches with brick piers corbelled at top; herring-bone pattern brickwork above, soldier course below and brick buttresses between with tile-weathered set-offs; 3-bay gable ends with round arch windows, the tall centre window on raised centre; brick bellcote over the east gable, which is linked to the convent; north gable formerly connected to convent, but the link has been removed. Wide W gable where the naves converge has semi-circular apse with narrow round-arch windows and single-storey vestry projecting below. INTERIOR: The naves have open timber hammer-beam roofs; where the roofs converge the trusses are painted, supported on round piers and are traceried above the arches. Galleried organ loft at east end of nuns' nave. Apse and chapels to left and right contain elaborate marble altars. Original pews intact. Communion rail removed. SOURCE: Buildings of England, p.645.
