SD 91 SW MILNROW CHURCH STREET (north-east side) 3/84 Church of St. Thomas - New Hey

- II Church. 1876-7. By H. Lloyd for James Heap. Rock-faced stone with white stone dressings and fishscale slate roof. Nave with clerestory, aisles, transepts, south-west tower and a chancel. Gothic revival. 5-bay nave and aisles with projecting plinth and weathered buttresses. Each bay has paired lights with Geometrical tracery and hoodmould in the aisles and two paired clerestory lights with cusped heads. 4-light transept windows. Coped gables with kneelers and cross finials. Chancel flanked by vestry and organ chamber has 5-light east window. The 4-stage tower has diagonal gableted buttresses topped by crocketed pinnacles, a crocketed triangular hoodmould above the door, an arcade of cusped lights at the first stage, a circular opening at the second, and paired belfry lights. The broach spire which has lucarnes and a weather-cock is set back behind an enriched parapet. Interior: Double-chamfered nave arcade on circular columns with naturalistic capitals and moulded bases. The tall transept arches are flanked by small secondary arches. Alternating arch-braced and tie-beam roof trusses. Blind arcading to sanctuary. Stone font and pulpit. Stained glass. Timber fittings. The church is a very close copy of Holy Trinity Church Western Super Mare (Lloyd 1861). It takes advantage of its dominating site and starkly contrasting materials to produce a distinctive and imposing building.
