II

Anglican chapel of ease, now parish church, 1892, by J.W. Hopkins of Worcester. Timber-frame with thatched gabled roof. Six A-frame trusses extending outside walls to iron shoes raised off ground on brick and connected under floor by tie-rods. Walling of boarded sandwich panels infilled with sawdust, horizontally boarded below, herringbone boarding between windows. Leaded timber windows, two 3-light each side, large mullion-and-transom end windows, 4-light to west, 3-light to east, the top-lights with Gothic fretted wood tracery. Similar tracery in angles between principal beams and outer walls. Thatched gabled south porch. Interior wholly boarded with carved wood screen and wood font. Built as a mission church for £170, £220 with fittings, the design intended as an alternative to the 'hideous and comfortless iron buildings so generally used'. (N.
