GV I

Church, clergy house and vestry with forecourt and screen wall. 1849-59 by William Butterfield. Red brick with vitreous brick diaper and banding, occasional stone dressings, slate roofs - a key High Victorian design and model church of the Camden Society, with innovative use of decoration. Bold, indeed 'Brutalist' Gothic. The church set back with lofty broach spired tower with sheer brick walls, the porch in angle of forecourt at its foot. Marble clustered columns and polychrome brickwork internally. The clergy house and vestry flank the forecourt with similar brick banding and finialled gables, pointed arched doorways and 2 and 3 light sash windows under cambered heads with blind pointed arched patterned brick tympana; they are linked by low stone weather capped forecourt wall with central gabled gateway. Good iron gates and railings to basement area in front and 2 decorative lampstandards. William Butterfield; P. Thompson.
