Details

FEATHERSTONE VICTORIA STREET SE 42 SW (south side) 3/12 Church of St. Thomas 13.3.64 (formerly listed as Purston Parish Church) - II Church. 1876-78. Rockfaced sandstone, green slate roof with red cockscomb ridging tiles. Early English style. Nave with north and south aisles and south porch and chancel. Tall 4-bay nave under steeply-pitched roof has angle buttresses and pilasters, 4 clerestorey windows of large quatrefoils with short coupled lancets beneath them; buttressed aisle has gabled porch to 1st bay with 2-centred arched outer doorway chamfered in 3 orders, lancet windows in the other bays. West gable has 3 lancets with linked hoodmoulds, and a large "rose" window above, formed by a central roundel with a rectilinear and curved tracery making a surround of 8 foils. Three-bay chancel has lancet windows, and east window of 3 stepped lancets in a recessed arch. Steeply-pitched roofs with gable copings and apex crosses. Interior: 4-bay aisle arcades of double-chamfered arches springing from exceptionally wide square capitals of roughly-hewn shallow blocks carried on relatively slim columns, with similarly hewn black stops to the hoodmoulds. Chancel arch with shafts rising from similarly roughly hewn figured corbels. (This decorative treatment perhaps a deliberate aesthetic reflection of the mining community which the church served).
