All Saints, Leek Road (SE). By Gerald Horsley, 1910-13. Brick, without a tower. The S aisle has not yet been built. Clerestory and aisle windows differ, not only in pattern, but also in style - i.e. 1910 carried its antiquarian learning lightly.
Picturesque NE vestry. An open-air pulpit on the W wall of the nave. Impressively high interior with boldly wide chancel arch. Nice openings from chancel to N chapel.

St. Luke's (Wellington):
The parish church of Wellington is St. Luke's, which was erected in 1854. It is an imposing structure in the Early English style, comprising chancel, nave, north aisle, and north and west porch, the latter having been added in 1878; there is also an incomplete tower. In 1847 an organ chamber was built, and an organ introduced, the church at the same time being reseated at a cost of 900. The church contains a handsome stained glass window, erected in 1878 to the memory of Bishop Selwyn. In 1887 a new reredos was introduced. There are 800 sittings, 477 being free.
