NOTES: The church was designed by E. S. Prior and A. Randall Wells, who had been Lethaby's Clerk of Works at Brockhampton (1904). Many of the fixtures and fittings are by Ernest Gimson, notably the oak panelled chancel and the oak choir stalls. The just glimpsed ceiling of the chancel wasn't painted until 1927, by Macdonald Gill, restored 1967 by Maurice Partland. The design of its theme is the Creation. The tapestry depicts the visit of the Three Wise Men and is a copy of a painting by Burne-Jone made by Morris & Co for the church.
