St Stephen's Church, Gloucester

Recent Photograph of St Stephen's Church (Gloucester)

St Stephen's was built 1897-99 in a free Perpendicular style by Walter Planck; the West end completed in 1929-30. Large, nave and aisles of five bays, crossing and transepts and full-height E sanctuary. Some subdivision has taken place, one of the entrances said “Hall only”. It has some pretentions of grandeur but it doesn't quite come off outside. Buttresses through the tracery of the transept windows and these and the east window have outer blank tracery as part of the overall window design.
