TQ3278 LARCOM STREET 636-1/8/466 (South side) Church of St John the Evangelist

II

Anglican church. 1859-60. By Henry Jarvis, District Surveyor. Vestry of 1912 by Greenaway and Newberry. Fittings by Comper, including rood and rails, 1928. MATERIALS: ragstone facing, roofs of slate. STYLE: Gothic Revival. PLAN: square-ended chancel of 3 bays; nave of 5 with aisles. South-west tower. Entrance porch 4th nave bay from east, north side. Second entrance in centre of west end at foot of saddle-backed tower. EXTERIOR: 5 lancets to east end with corner buttresses; aisles articulated by setback buttresses; aisles lit by single lancets; roundels to clerestory dormers. Bar tracery, of 4 lights, to west end, with roundel of unusual design to steeply pitched gable. The west elevation a most arresting design, but impossible to view except from narrow forecourt to the west: 3 stages, with setback, corner buttresses rising through the 2nd; the top, bell stage articulated by blind Early English arcade; gable end of saddleback tower facing west and east. The entire design recalls the earlier works of Butterfield and particularly Henry Woodyer. INTERIOR: open timber roofs to chancel and nave. The latter has one steeply pitched dormer per bay and a very shallow clerestory. The arcades are carried on paired cast-iron columns, most unusual in a 'High' Anglican church of this date.
