gate piers with gate


Church. 1866 by John Middleton of Cheltenham. Squared and
snecked rubble sandstone with white Bath stone dressings, tiled
roof, coped gables with elaborate cross finials. South west
tower, 4-bay nave with clerestory, single storey north and south
aisles, gabled south porch with elaborate bargeboard, 2-bay
chancel. Tower of 3 stages with string courses, stepped angle
buttresses on lower 2 stages, large pointed window at belfry stage
with colonnette shafts and carved head label stops. Stone broach
spire above. Aisle windows all 3-light but with varying tracery
in French Gothic style. 4 clerestory roundels with alternating
tracery designs.
Interior: Nave has arched timber roof with large pierced trefoils
above and arched windbracing across rafters. The main trusses are
supported on colonnettes with carved capitals on richly ornamental
corbels. The roofs are all painted and stencilled. Arcade of 4
pointed arches on cylindrical piers with richly carved capitals,
all in striped Bath stone/blue Forest stone with red sandstone
upper moulding. Chancel arch also incorporates red sandstone in
striped work, and above are Alpha and Omega designs and a foliated
cross. In the Chancel, reredos by Hardman in several different
marbles, carved and gilded, with flanking sedilia and piscina to
match. Encaustic tiles on Chancel floor. Original pews remain
nearly all with double brass candlesticks with foliage design.
Elaborate font and pulpit of marble and Forest stone. Chancel
windows by Hardman. Church appears to have had very little
alteration. Gate piers of stone in form of coped cross gables
with elaborate fleur-de-lis finials and wrought iron gate between
with ecclesiastical symbols - one pair leading to south porch,
other pair opposite west door at about 50m distant.
