HANDSWORTH NEW ROAD 1. 5104 Winson Green B18 Bishop Latimer Memorial Church with All Saints (formerly listed as Memorial Church of Bishop Latimer under New Road, Handsworth) SP 08 NW 6/28 21.1.70 II* 2. 1903-04, architect W H Bidlake. A very large church akin to an East Anglian Perpendicular wool church. Very high quality use of stone and brick, so typical of Bidlakes attention to detail. Pale red brick with stone dressings and fully handled subtly varied perpendicular tracery. Aisles, lofty clerestory to nave, crossing and handsome north west tower and pierced parapet. Internally buff brick is used with stonework for the arcades, an entirely monochrome effect, but fresco work over the south east arch of the south arcade indicates the intention of a much more extensive decorative scheme. Six bay lofty arcade with clustered piers. Highly individual and imaginative treatment of the clerestory with slight internal canting of the 2 light windows and free standing central shaft. Brick infilled lierne vault to apsidal chancel. At the west end in the south corner is an immersion font with simple wrought iron ground rail. The nave waggon roof has alternate hammer beam trusses.
