Details

KEBLE STREET SW17 1. 5033 Church of St Mary (Summers Town) TQ 2671 17/1 II 2. 1903 by Godfrey Pinkerton. The massing is Gothic with gable ends to nave, chancel and those alternate bays of the aisles which are arranged transeptally. The nave is fronted by a narthex. The south tower to the chancel, which houses the organ loft, remains incomplete with a square hipped roof. The building is of red brick with stone dressings and tiled roofs. The window tracery and other detailing is non-traditional. The narthex comprises 3 advanced bays, the centre saucer-domed and segmental on plan, the outer ones gabled. They flank twin double doors recessed beneath cambered-arch heads. A stone bandcourse and coping frame a vertical alternation of stone bands and brick panels across the upper facade. This breaks round the angles to the parapets of the non-transeptal aisle bays. The nave gable is pierced by a triplet of lancets, their blind round-arched heads linked by a stone band. The transeptal aisle-bays have large round-arched windows and the tower a round-arched door surround. In the interior the transeptal aisle bays have barrel vaults, the alternate bays double arches opening to the nave and with granite piers. The carving, including font and cover, was by Lawrence A Turner, the east window by Morris and Company 1928, using designs by Burne-Jones.
