1881 – Proposed New Aisle, Chard Church, Somerset


Proposal published in The Building News, July 22nd 1881. Never completed. “The accompanying illustration represents a new south aisle to be shortly erected. In making the required addition, the architect has been, guided by precedents at the parish-churches of Cullompton and Ottery St. Mary, where large aisles were added in the 18th century, and the style aimed at in the present case is the latest phase of the Perpendicular. The new aisle is part of a scheme for the general restoration and enlargement of the parish-church, for which funds are now being collected. The architect is Mr. John D. Sedding.”
