East end all by Pilkington: short chancel, with east wall panelled in marble as background for reredos by P P Pugin, with 3 spirelets over statues, 8 smaller niches. Altar rail of strange Renaissance design (? Clutton): openwork brass foliage, with white marble portrait medallions of Jesuit saints, in shallow bow. North chapel with tieceron vault and Spanish Gothic altar of the Assumption (192l-2). South chapel, wooden vault, another canopied reveals. Externally, tower by Clutton: buff brick and stone with straight-headed transomed and traceried belfry windows, cornice with globules and pyramid spire of banded slate. Remainder by Pilkington, in rock-faced Portland stone, except for Clutton's aisle gables (Perpendicular tracery). Windowless gable to chancel with canopied niches, on high basement (Catholic Institute).
