Radcliffe-on-Trent – St Anne

New Road, Radcliffe-on-Trent, Nottinghamshire NG2

A modest structure built as a church hall, which has been altered and adapted over the years.

The church was built in 1962 as a church hall doubling up as a chapel of ease, the first phase of a development intended to comprise a church hall, church and presbytery. The architects were Reynolds & Scott and the contractors Bodill & Sons of Hucknall. The building was designed to accommodate 170 worshippers. In the event the hall has remained the church, altered and extended over the years. In 1982 extensions were built by Reynolds & Scott to provide catering facilities, a meeting room and extra seating for weekend Masses. In the 1990s, the presbytery was extended, adding an office and a small reception room. A new sacristy was also built on to the hall. The church was consecrated by Bishop McMahon on 26 July 2002, the 40th anniversary of its opening. In 2010 new sliding doors were fitted between the main body of the church and the meeting room to provide an almost sound proof room for parents of small children.

The church is a utilitarian design, reflecting its originally intended function as a church hall. It is clad in brick, with long clerestory lights and a shallow pitched roof. Later flat roofed additions project in front of the building. The interior has been somewhat altered since 1962, with the loss of the original high altar and reredos and the introduction of benches in place of pews.
