1478/4/51 Church of St Anne
Church. 1880-2. J.M. and H. Taylor. Brick with clay tile roof.
Cruciform plan with a crossing tower and an undercroft
beneath chancel and transepts. Free Gothic style with
vernacular details. 3-bay nave (without aisles) has
weathered buttresses, 2, 3 or 4-light mullion and transom
windows with cusped heads, and overhanging eaves. A
polygonal baptistry projects at the west and a gabled porch
on south. The transepts have a 5-light window (north) and a
circular window with mullions and tracery (south). 5-light
west window to 3-bay chancel which is flanked by a vestry
with a hipped roof and an organ chamber with an outshut
roof. The undercroft with its mullion windows adds to the
height and splendour of the building. Large crossing tower,
roofed in two stages has a stepped-in timber-framed bell
stage and a square swept spire with gabled dormer openings.
Bold diagonal buttresses and a conically roofed octagonal
stair turret contribute to the romantic appearance.
INTERIOR: faced in polychromatic brick to great effect.
Sturdy roof structure employs arch-braced roof trusses
springing from carved stone corbels. Double-chamfered brick
crossing arches and an octopartite vault. The arches are
supported at the east by short freestanding polished granite
columns creating squinches. The whole interior (including
undercroft) is rich in craftsmanship in glass, iron, stone
and ceramics. Glass is by Heaton Butler and Bayne; mosaic by
Salviati and Co. of Venice. One of the Taylors' most
imaginative works showing individuality and opulence in most
aspects of design and craftsmanship. E. Joseph Sidebotham,
local philosopher and industrialist, was the patron.
