BLUBBERHOUSES SHEPHERD HILL ROAD SE 15 NE (east side) 2/20 Church of St Andrew - II

Church. 1851. By E B Lamb for Lady Frankland. Coursed gritstone rubble and ashlar, graduated stone slate roof. 3-bay nave, north aisle with tower and porch grouped at the west end, 3-bay chancel. Built on a steep slope, in an Early English style. Flight of 7 stone steps to studded board door of porch with scrolled hinges in chamfered pointed arch below deep pitched roof with gable copings. Tower of 2 storeys with tall lancet belfry windows, stepped angle buttresses, deep corbelled eaves to pyramidal spire with small lucarnes and finial. North aisle: 3 paired trefoil-headed windows; east window of 3 trefoil-headed lancets, south side as north aisle, west end: 2 trefoil-headed lancets divided by a stepped buttress. Wide gable copings and cross finials to apex of gables. Interior: north aisle roof supported on deeply chamfered ashlar pillar with corbels carrying the timberwork of nave and aisle roof. Nave roof of a hammer-beam type with king posts, the chancel roof has an arch braced truss. Porch inner door has studs and scroll hinges as the door to left into the tower. The altar rail and pulpit are C17 oak, the rail balusters finely carved with alternate fluted columns. The church is typical of the work of E B Lamb (1806-69), having a low contour and heaviness of effect with complicated timber roof structure also seen at St Mary's Church, Gospel Oak, London (1862-65) and St Mary's Addiscombe, Surrey (1868).
