redundant. Building converted and used as a social centre. All fixtures and
fittings by Fellowes Prynne.
Chancel cross and aumbrey went to St. Michaelís, Tokyngton, Wembley: other
items to St. Gabrielís, Cricklewood and to a parish or parishes in Norfolk.
The interior was seen by the author shortly before internal
rebuilding, and had some notable features. As a change from red and white, the
colour is given in contrasting ochre and white stone. The nave arches feature
both colours, as do the walls. At the time of the visit, there was a wall but no
screen at the chancel entrance. The choir stalls, communion rails and high altar
were in Prynneís standard oak designs, the altar having three sections, with the
frontal behind the woodwork. The chancel wall and pulpit were of stone with
coloured marble panels. The reredos in the Lady chapel was again typical, being
a triptych with the centre panel larger and with a curved top, creating a
pleasingly balanced work. Externally the building is of grey stone with a little
colour added by the use of brick and tiles.
Heating was originally done by Kinnell & Co.
At this church the war
memorial was the altar and reredos of a memorial chapel. The altar is of the
style such as can be found at
St. George, Benenden and
St. Mark, Hadlow
Down Lady chapels. Above it, the reredos fits into an arch. It is in
three panels, with a depiction of Christís ascension in the centre panel, and
the names of the fallen to the left and right. The whole piece is in stone and
marble, and is unlike anything else so far observed.
