HISTORY

We are very proud of our beautiful little church.

Christ Church was built between 1862 and 1864 to the design of Sir George Gilbert Scott (1811-1878). Scott was a British architect, and a noted designer, renovating many churches and cathedrals including Westminster Abbey. Other of his buildings besides churches, include the Albert Memorial (1864), St. Pancras Station (1865), and government offices in Whitehall (1861).

Christ Church is a Grade 11 listed building, built in plain Early English style and relatively undecorated in random local stone. Internally there is a wide nave, with a short choir and a semi-circular apse. Projecting from the North wall there is a vestry and an organ chamber. The roof over the apse is of close set rafters, which form a semi-dome. The church seats about 100 adults.
