NOTES: This was built as a private chapel-of-ease by William Halfpenny in 1741-1743 for John Cossins of Redland Court, the local manor house, but was not consecrated until 1790. A parish was formed at Redland in 1942 when the chapel became the parish church. Thomas Paty was responsible for the stone carving of the exterior ornamentation and the wooden carving on the interior, particularly that of the chancel, and for the font, executed in 1755.
