Christ Church United Reformed Church. Built for Congregationalists to replace two earlier chapels. Started in 1874-7, by the leading Nonconformist architect John Tarring, a Gothic building to vie with those of the Anglicans. It is of Kentish rag with Bath stone dressings, cruciform with polygonal apse and a fine tower-porch with crocketed spire and diagonal buttresses topped by pinnacles. Delicately carved angel busts flank the doorway. The interior has arcades on slim quatrefoil piers with lavish carved capitals; transepts with elaborate Decorated style tracery. Fittings – marble pulpit, carved reredos and stained glass, which are also in the Anglican tradition.
