Bobbers Mill Road: St Stephen - nave, arcades and west window
St Stephen’s replaced a church lost when Victoria Station was built in the centre of the city, and it was paid for by the Great Central Railway company – see SK5541 : Plaque: St Stephen's, Bobbers Mill Road. “It [is] by W D Caröe and it is very typical of his style, with a very fanciful broad crossing turret, very low aisles with broad windows, a W front with a naughty buttress right up the centre of the central window (a Sedding motif), and detail of the characteristic Arts and Crafts Gothic of c 1900. There are surely some good fittings” (Nikolaus Pevsner). Of those good fittings, the reredos was destroyed by a fire in 1977.
