G.V.

II

Cemetery chapel, now disused. 1903. By Sharpe & Foster. Rock- faced stone with red sandstone ashlar dressings and clay tile roof. Nave, west tower, north porch and porte-cochère at east end. Free Gothic style with Arts and Crafts influence. The 3-bay nave has a projecting plinth, weathered buttresses and windows on two levels; the lower lancet windows are below blind arches and the 3-light upper level windows are arched and traceried. Gabled porch at base of 4-stage tower which has a square stair turret at one corner. The tower also has two 3-light basket-arched mullion and transom windows beneath pointed hoodmoulds, a diminished second stage with 6-light curvilinear tracery windows on each side, clock-faces to the third stage with oriel projections to either side, and an unusual top stage all in timber which is set back behind a parapet, has gables on each side and openings with pierced panels in naturalistic forms. The porte-cochère is castellated and enclosed but for double gates to north and south. Interior: impressive tie- beam roof trusses with heavy carving, brattished enrichment, open-arcaded vertical members and diagonal braces. The nave continues into the tower separated only by an arch. Three arches at the east end, the centre one forming a reredos, the others opening unto the porte-cochère. Stained glass. Timber pews. Original light fittings.
