II

Parish church. 1900, by Grayson and Ould; built at the expense of Douglas Horsfall (stockbroker). Red brick with pink sandstone dressings, green slate roofs. STYLE: Free Gothic. PLAN: large nave with low north and south aisles, north and south porches, large north and south transepts, the latter with a slender octagonal south-east belfry tower, and a full-height chancel. EXTERIOR: sandstone bands and string courses carried round. The west end of the nave has emphatic angle-buttresses and a large 2-centred arched west window with deep moulded reveal and elaborate tracery. Its 6-bay side walls are distinguished by flying buttresses spanning the aisles: the aisles have two small 1-light windows in each bay except the first, which have prominent square cross-gabled porches with diagonal buttresses, large moulded arches in two sides and gables enriched with bands and raised strips; and the nave has large 2-centred arched clerestory windows (2 lights in the 1st bay and 3 lights in the others), with differing tracery and run-out hoodmoulds. The gables of the transepts have angle-buttresses and large traceried 4-light windows. The tower has a base storey with weathered coping, small square-headed staircase windows on 3 levels above, and a tall belfry stage of sandstone with traceried 1-light windows, a banded brick parapet and a copper-clad spirelet. The chancel has a very large 5-light east window with elaborate tracery. INTERIOR: brick, with pale pink sandstone dressings; wide 6-bay nave with arch-braced hammerbeam roof, narrow passage-aisles with sandstone arcades; very large chancel arch with Perpendicular blind arcading; good Perpendicular-style screen (1920s memorial to Horsfall's son, killed in Great War).
