REDRUTH TRELEIGH SW 74 SW 6/375 Church of St Stephen II Church. c.1870. Uncoursed killas rubble with granite dressings, Delabole slate roofs with ornamental slate verges and red ridging tiles. Cruciform plan with shallow transepts and apsidal chancel, plus a porch at the west end of the south side and a small vestry in the angle of the chancel and north transept. Early English style. Plinth, diagonal buttresses with offsets. The low gabled porch has diagonal buttresses, 2-centred arched outer and inner doorways, the outer chamfered in 2 orders with pyramid stops, the inner with a plank door furnished with elaborate hinges, a small lancet window in each side wall, and a steeply-pitched roof with ornamental slate verge and cockscomb ridging riles. The nave has 3 lancets on the wouth side and 4 on the north side, and at the west end 2 similar lancets and an oculus above, and a gable bellcote (C20 flat-roofed single-storey addition at this end not of special interest). The short transepts each have a 2-centred arched 3-light window with a cinquefoil in the head, the north transept has a gable chimney to the left of the apex, and the small gabled vestry to the left has a 2-light window; the semi-circular chancel has 3 lancets like those of the nave. Most of these windows have original latticed glazing and ferramenta, except where replaced by coloured memorial glass. Interior not inspected, but unlikely to have been altered significantly.
