GV II

Roman Catholic Church. 1915. By Scoles and Raymond. MATERIALS: polygonal coursed Devon limestone rubble with ashlar dressings, steeply-pitched slate roof. STYLE: Gothic Revival. PLAN: aisled. EXTERIOR: tall gabled north, street, facade to the church has tall flanking octagonal turrets with gabled and panelled facets to tops; stone cross to the apex and a triple niche with a statue to the centre over a 6-cusped circular window. 5 equal trefoil-headed lancets rest on a sill band above double planked doors and a gold mosaic tympanum to a moulded pointed arch with colonettes. A hoodmould to the arch continues over similar 2-light windows flanking the door. The sill band continues below parapets to castellated single-storey canted wings to each side which have continuous hoodmoulds over a trefoil-headed window to each facet of the left-hand wing and a 2-light Decorated style window to the front of the right-hand wing. PRESBYTERY to left has an external stack to the left gable end and a left-of-centre ridge stack. Double-depth plan. 2 storeys; 3-window range. Moulded kneelers coping of gable ends, a central forward-facing gable and a small half dormer to the left. Horizontal glazing bars to 2/2-pane sash windows, those to the first floor with shallow pointed arches, those to the ground floor with shouldered arches. Windows to the central gable and ground-floor left are under relieving arches. The range to the left attached to the church is C20 with flat arches to paired windows and a C20 door to the right of the central gable. INTERIOR: not inspected but reported as having plain fittings and Perpendicular-style arcades. A remarkably conservative example of a church in this almost pre-Ecclesiological style. (BoE: Pevsner N & Cherry B: Devon: London: 1989-: 587).
