of the Resurrection


Large Romanesque style church. Started in 1911 by Sir Walter Tapper.
Nave and aisles, 1937 by Michael Tapper. South porch and south
transept (south end) 1970s. The early part is in deeply coursed red
sandstone ashlar, the later parts in red brick. Copper-clad roofs.
Chancel and chancel aisles have apsidal east ends. The two-bay chancel
and 5-bay apse is divided by pilasters and colonnettes, and each bay
has a round arched window at high level. Chancel aisles are divided
into recessed panels with tiny round arched light to each, and round-
arched corbel table. Al bay nave divided by brick pilaster strips
with rendered sunk panels between. Lean-to aisles with tiled roof.
Oculus to each bay at clerestory level. Short transepts to north and
south. At low level due to sloping ground are triple round arched
windows to the college chapel under the nave. The big west end has
a large central round-arched opening containing a large oculus. The
corners are marked by square stair towers rising as octagonal bell
towers with pyramidal copper roofs. Later additions to north side,
east end.

Interior: Tunnel vaults. Simple nave. The crossing is 2 bays by
2 bays on large square piers with central column to each side.
Transepts are short with large thermal window at high level. Behind
the altar, a further bay forms a straight ambulatory between main
altar and chancel. Side chapels are in line with transepts and
separated from chancel by 2-bay arcade on paired colonnettes.
Columns have scrolled cushion capitals. Some door surrounds have
Classical mouldings.
