Details

SD 90 NW CHADDERTON QUEENS ROAD (north side) 4/9 Church of - St. Luke - II Church. 1882. By Stott and Sons. Hammer-dressed stone with slate roof. Tall nave and chancel under a continuous roof with west baptistry flanked by porches and low aisles. The intended north-west tower and a chapterhouse (and probably a vaulted ceiling) were never realised. Gothic revival. 5-bay nave and aisles. Projecting plinth and corbelled eaves. Angled corner buttresses and 2 flying buttresses to each side. 3 (or 4 on north) 2-light aisle window. The principal windows are at clerestory level and have 3-lights and geometrical tracery. Coped gables with finials. A brick lean-to addition takes the place of the organ chamber which was never built. Three 2-light east windows under an arched recess. Interior: ashlar-faced chancel, terra-cotta nave. Moulded terracotta nave arcade arches on quatrefoil stone columns. King-post roof trusses but with a ceiling inserted in C20. Stone font with richly carved cover. Timber fittings. Good stained glass much of which is by J. B. Capronnier, including east window. A plaque in the chancel records the name of Edward Platt, local mill owner, who paid for the chancel. The lofty nave and chancel, coupled with rich detailing results in an unusual and interesting interior.
