Brief Description

An early 20th century building. It has remarkable green painted pews and red, black and white decoration against a background of whitewashed walls.

  • Main Description

    The exterior of the original church was a mixture of southern Romanesque and Early English styles and Pevsner describes it as having a Mediterranean feel.

    The inside of the present church has a traditional English layout but with remarkable green painted pews and red, black and white decoration against a background of whitewashed walls. The east window was designed by Mr A K Nicholson and the two panels feature the Archangel Gabriel and the Blessed Virgin Mary. Most of the fittings were given by generous donors, one fascinating feature is that the table in the vestry was made from the altar which had stood in the old church.
    The dedication of the new church took place in 1906.
