Listing Text

The following building shall be added:

Anglican Church. Designed from 1935-39, construction completed
in 1954; to the designs of Harold J. Gibbons. Brick in English
bond, with artificial stone dressings; concrete; tile roofs.
Chancel and nave continuous of eight round-arched bays, that
to ritual west end very high to mark entrance axis, then four
diminutive bays and flat roofed north and south aisles; three
broad round arches marking vestigial transept, expressed by
facing gables outside, and choir. Polygonal baptistery with
stone font to west end. Gambrel-roofed porch to southwest with
slender bell cote/tower rising behind. The chief interest of
the interior is the use of this continuous arcade to organise
the liturgical plan and the way in which secondary features,
such as the stair to the east end of the north aisle, are
clearly subsidiary to it. The variety in roof forms is also
noteworthy: transverse barrel vaults over the high bays
marking the entrance range; cambered vault continuous over
nave/chancel; aisle ceilings are coffered from cast concrete;
pair of shallow transverse barrel vaults to eastmost bays
south aisle. Organ loft reached by stairs under arcade. Carved
rood, with cross in the form of an anchor. Electric light
fixtures of original design. Two storey ancillary rooms to
ritual northeast. Interior surfaces concrete, painted in
original colour scheme in roof and at points of emphasis,
unpainted elsewhere. Statue of Christ over south portal.
Noteworthy interior features include a stone font. Although
the details are of an original character and the emphasis is
on formal play and pure geometries, the design is redolent
with medievalism.
