SJ4912NW CASTLE STREET 653-1/11/175 (South East side) Former Church of St Nicholas


Former church, now converted to offices. c1850. By RC Bennett of Weymouth. Coursed and squared limestone, with plain tiled roofs. PLAN: Romanesque style with high and short nave, with lean-to aisles, and vestigial apse. EXTERIOR: high west gable, with deep moulding to round-arched doorway with triple shafts and foliate and trumpet capitals. Lean-to aisle to right with side door and round-arched window in west end. Circular stair turret to left, with narrow stair windows. Curved corner to north aisle, with doorway recessed across angle, with engaged shafts with foliate capitals. 4-bay aisle divided by a central buttress. Simple round-arched windows, and circular windows in short clerestory above. A well-articulated example, in the neo-Norman style, which makes an important contribution to the streetscape. (The Buildings of England: Pevsner N: Shropshire: Harmondsworth: 1858-).
