Visited by cardinal TranKmasT, father Doneby and Luke the altar boy.

The architect employed by Mr. Maden Holt was E. Wyndham Tarn of London. The church, 120 ft. long and 53 ft. wide was built in the Early Pointed Gothic style from stone quarried on Mr. Holt's estate with pillars of polished red granite. Seating accommodation was provided for 1,000 people. The tower, which stands on the north side of the chancel, is surmounted by a spire 150 ft. in height. A small transept was built on the south side of the church. It was used originally as a pew for the Holt family but later the font was transferred to this chapel from its former position in the chancel. The church contains a baptistry for the immersion of adults. It is sunk in the chancel floor and is covered by an ornamental grating.


Constructed around 1870

Very good that, I like old churches though I think I'd have been looking for "baptistry for the immersion of adults" to see if it was there.

Cracking photos! I went here a few weeks back, such a waste of a great building!

Another wrecked organ. Strange how only some of the open diapason pipes are missing. Usually, when, well, lets say "Scapr Merchants" target a derelict building, they have all the metial pipes away mainly for the tin content. Why they have to smash up the manuals just for kicks is beyond me. Very sad. Lovely explore though and great pics. Thank you.
