ALDERLEY EDGE C.P. CHURCH LANE Church of St. Philip and St James

(Formerly listed as Church of St. Phillip)

GV II* Church: 1853 and south aisle and spire 1857 by J.S Crowther, vestry added 1903 by F.P Oakley. Hammer-dressed sandstone rubble with ashlar dressings. Roof of bands of green, grey, and blue-grey slates and a pierced ridge. Decorated style with reticulated tracery. Six-bay nave and aisles, each under own ridge, three-bay chancel, hexagonal vestry and four-stage south west tower and spire.

Aisles have bays, divided by buttresses, each containing a two-light window. Similar chancel but with priest's door with trefoil cusped head and ornate iron hinges, and ending in diagonal buttresses with crocketted pinnacles. East window of four-lights has ogee shaped hood. Tower has angle buttresses. Deeply rebated porch door on three colonnettes has label mould on carved head stops, single lights in next two stages and ornate surrounds to two-light louvred bell openings. Tall spire has three levels of lucarnes.

Interior: six-bay arcade has round columns to north aisle and octagonal to south. Chancel arch stands on engaged semi-hexagonal columns. Chancel has a sedilia on the south wall and a piscina on the north both with trefoil cusped heads. Finely carved reredos of Last Supper (of 1903) and delicate panelling to simple choir stalls, pulpit and organ screen of 1907. Morris window of 1873 in south aisle. Wagon roofs throughout.

Though built in two stages the church must have been conceived as a whole and has a powerful exterior, correct in its detailing by the co-author with Bowman of Churches of the Middle Ages.
