Church

II

Presbyterian church. 1871. By Medland and Son. Yellow brick
with decorative bands and diaper panels of red and brown
brick, stone dressings, tiled roofs with decorative ridge
tiles. Eclectic Gothic style. Aisled nave of six bays with a
single end-gable roof, tower at the north-west corner with
pyramidal tiled roof replacing original ashlar spire; a lower

EXTERIOR: tower with entrance doorway on the north side set
into shallow porch with gabled arch; west front with double
central entrance doorway approached by a flight of stone steps
and set in a shallow porch with a stone gabled arch supported
on stone columns with foliated capitals; over the doorways a
sculpted stone tympanum showing George Whitefield preaching to
congregation and inscribed on the trumeau "The love of Christ
constrains me to lift up my heart like a trumpet". Above the
doorway and a moulded stone sill band are three stepped
windows with moulded brick arches: the central window of
three-lights and the side windows of two lights all with
foiled Decorated tracery in stone.

A good example of a non-conformist church designed in a
vigorous and eclectic style, by a noteworthy firm of local
architects.
