SJ79SE BROOKLANDS BROOKLANDS ROAD (west side) 698-1/549-7/549 Church of St John the Divine 3/10/74 II* Church. 1864-68, by Alfred Waterhouse. Coursed sandstone rubble, red tiled roof. Gothic style. Nave with double north and south transepts, north porch, chancel with north vestry (plus C20 additions to west end). The buttressed 6-bay nave has large 2-centred arched 3-light windows with cusped lights and large emphatic unfoiled circular tracery, linked by a drip-band which carries round the buttresses; square corner pinnacles; and a very large 6-light west window (the lower part now concealed by additions at this end). The gabled porch to the 1st bay on the north side has a cusped opening under a 2-centred arch with paired shafts; wrought-iron gates and immediately inside these a panelled screen and door. The transepts have large 3-light windows similar to those of the nave but with spherical triangles over the outer lights, and roofs with bands of green fishscale slates and red cockscomb ridge tiles. The chancel has (inter alia) a large rose window with circular tracery, a niche below this with the eagle emblem of the Evangelist, and a band of raised lettering. The porch to the north vestry has a moulded doorway with innner lintel inscribed "LET THY PRIESTS BE CLOTHED WITH RIGHTEOUSNESS". Interior: yellow brick with some polychromatic patterning; steep open roof; one south nave window with stained glass by Morris & Co., 1897 (Pevsner). This building was formerly listed in the City of Manchester.
