This attractive brick built church has recently undergone major refurbishment including significant replastering and redecorating. I was fortunate in finding this unusual building open.
The architect was Grenville Streatfield and the building was erected in 1904. The style could loosely be described as Early English/Arts and Crafts Gothic. There is an enormous north tower with a weather boarded belfry, spire and canopied clock.
The church is in fact an enlargement of an earlier church dating from 1838, which is now the chancel.
Here are two views looking east, one of the nave, and the second of the chancel.
Here is the west window which is in memory of the founder, George Courthorpe of Whiligh.
Here are the organ and the font.
Here is one final picture of the attractive tower.
My thanks to the very courteous gentlemen who let me look around the church.
