Statement of Interest

Ecclesiastical building in use as such. Architect's fee

$276, tradesmen $4,212 and tower completion $420. Mottled

masonry indicates raising of tower. Blocked door intended to

lead to unrealised lobby. Lorimerian training of architect

is evident.

Interior bears comparison with the plain simplicity of

Lethaby's Brockhampton Church.
