Summary Description

A large Victorian Gothic town church of red brick, its west end set on the junction of St Saviour’s and East Park Road in the North Evington eastern suburb of Leicester. The church was built to serve housing estates and factories laid out in the late 19th century designed by the Leicester architect Arthur Wakerley. It was begun with the nave in 1897 - the chancel extended in 1903 - to a design by Stockdale Harrison, a well-known local architect responsible for many secular buildings in Leicester. It is designed in a very sober Early English style, dominated by the use of pointed lancets. There are no aisles and the roofs sweep straight down.
