SZ0090SE CHURCH STREET
958-1/17/15 (South East side)
28/05/74 St James's Church Hall
Formerly known as: St James' Sabbath School CHURCH STREET.
Sunday school, now church hall. 1862, altered 1956. Red brick
with stone dressings, coloured diaper work, partly rendered,
tiled roof. Gothic Revival style. Rectangular plan.
2 storeys; 7-window range. Articulated by full-height
buttresses with steep weathered caps, plinth and moulded
first-floor cill band with moulded cornice. Shallow
2-centre-arched end entrances with chamfered splayed
surrounds, and double doors to right-hand end, open left-hand
mid C20 through passage. 2-centre-arched windows with mid-C20
glazing. INTERIOR has a meeting room with coved plaster
ceiling and moulded cornice, and a gallery in the S extension
with a panelled front on fluted cast-iron columns.
HISTORICAL NOTE: founded as the St James' Sabbath School, the
Gothic style chosen for the exterior is more characteristic of
earlier C19 Commissioners' Gothic than the Ecclesiological
Gothic developed from the 1840s. Hit by a Second World War
bomb, and subsequently restored. Originally had matching
arched doorways at both ends.
