HORTON CUM STUDLEY CHURCH LANE SP5912 (North side) Horton 14/58 Church of St. Barnabas 22/05/73 (Formerly listed as St. Barnabas's Church) - II Church. 1867 by William Butterfield. Polychrome brick with limestone-ashlar dressings; plain-tile roof. Nave, north aisle, chancel and south porch. Gothic-revival style. Short chancel has, to east, 3 trefoil-headed lancets under a hood mould; to north, 3 grouped lancets and, to south, a small hipped-roofed vestry with narrow windows with shouldered arches. Nave has, to south, 2 paired lancets under hood moulds, plus a single lancet near the porch. The outer arch of the porch is pointed segmental and of 2 chamfered orders. The central section of the nave west wall breaks forward to contain the 3-light window, with early-Decorated tracery, and rises to a buttressed and gabled double bellcote with 2 shouldered arches. The nave roof continues over the narrow north aisle which has only a sexfoil window to east and a small lancet to west. All walls are in yellow stock brick with banding in light-red and flared bricks, and have diapering in the upper parts. The gables of the porch and bellcote and the spandrels of the east window, are in patterned unbonded work. Interior: chancel walls have polychrome interlacing diapering, and the north window has detached Purbeck-marble shafts. The responds of the brick chancel arch are probably of slate. The 7-canted roof is panelled over the sanctuary bay. The nave has wall patterning similar to the exterior, and has a 4-bay wooden north arcade with solid spandrels rising to an arcade plate: the roof has arch-braced collar trusses. C19 fittings including font and reredos. Contemporary stained glass in chancel and c.1893 in south windows of nave. (V.C.H.: Oxfordshire, Vol.V, p.75; Buildings of England; Oxfordshire, p.656).
