Designed by R.J. Withers the east end, which was constructed in 1883-1884 faces the road. Work on the nave began in 1899 and was completed the following year. It was declared redundant in 1985, having been disused since early 1983. Since then it has been used as a warehouse and offices, a care home, and now an English language school called The Burlington School of English.
To the east of the town centre, but hidden down a side turning. It is a large church of 1899-1901 by George Fellowes-Prynne, added to a chancel and lady chapel of 1882 by R.J. Withers. It features one of Fellowes-Prynne’s characteristic stone screens. The pulpit is of 1651. The church more foundation and consecration stones than any other church I know of.
