Church of St Luke
SE 1434 NE 27/1156
1880-81 by T H and F Healy. Freely handled C14 Gothic and Perpendicular style.
Certain features of the decorative work, more especially the tracery, anticipate
Arts and Crafts design. Unusually for this date the church is built of snecked
ironstone and sandstone with ashlar dressings. Nave, chancel, low aisles with
gabled cross bays and transepts. Principal feature is the virtually detached
campanile tower on the north side. Broad windows with low arches to aisles and
west end with complex ogee tracery and cusping. Flat arched aisle windows with
similar tracery. The tower has a plain sandstone "brick" shaft rising to an
octagonal ashlar belfry with panel tracery to bell openings. Water spouts
project from string at base of crenellated parapet which is crowned by pinnacles
and lucarnes and a short stone spire rises overall. The tower has a crocketed
ogee arched doorway above which is set a canopied niche containing a statue of
St Luke. The tower of St Luke's makes an important contribution to the
Heaton townscape, standing out against the skyline in the hillside.
