II

Baptist church, with attached church hall. 1910, possibly by George Baines & Sons. Accrington red brick with buff terracotta dressings and slate roofs (sides and rear of common brick with yellow brick bands). STYLE: Arts and Crafts Gothic. PLAN: nave with north and south porches, north and south transepts; linked at rear to church hall which is parallel on north side. EXTERIOR: 2-storey gabled facade, symmetrical, with terracotta chequerwork in the gable and terracotta coping carried up to a square finial with diagonal spouts, and the porches forming short side wings. The centre has a shallow porch with diagonal buttresses terminating in square brattished terracotta turrets, and a wide segmental-pointed doorway with terracotta surround including a traceried 3-light overlight and a strongly-swept gable with mouchette enrichment; and above this a 2-centred arched traceried 3-light window with cavetto surround and hoodmould with foliated stops. The porch-wings, boldly modelled, with terracotta bands and oversailing eaves on wrought-iron brackets, each have a square-headed doorway in a terracotta segmental-pointed arch with chamfered surround and blind multifoil arcading, and above this a pair of narrow lancets with deep splayed reveals and terracotta cusping in the heads. The 2-window 2-storey side walls have 3-light windows on each floor, those at ground floor segmental-headed and all with terracotta tracery in the heads; the transepts have 2 similar windows below a large traceried 3-light window. The HALL, with side aisles under cat-slide roofs, has a 3-bay gabled facade in similar style, with a wide central doorway which combines features of the doorways of the church and a large 2-centred arched 5-light window, flanked by brick pilasters with niches. INTERIOR: not inspected.
