Heathfield – St George Broad Oak
(image) A cruciform building with steep shingled roofs designed by W S Newman (BE(E) p474) and built in 1959. The walls are boarded inside and out (the boards inside are wider) and the roof-trusses rise from floor-level, initially curved in form. The side-windows, which are directly under the eaves, contain yellowish glass and so does the lozenge-shaped west window. There is a small belfry in the centre of the roof.
Font: Plain wood and polygonal with tapered sides.
Painting: (over the altar) symbolic in blue and white. Signed M M Parker, 1959
