St Matthew

Features and Fittings


Originally the pews from Nottingham St Matthew were re-used. Made of pitch pine, stained and varnished, the architect, Vernon Royle, had them painted in three colours arranged alternately. They were later replaced by cushioned chairs.


The pulpit is of brick, located in the north-east corner of the nave, probably contemporary with the building of the church.
