Description

St Luke the Physician’s Anglican Church is in the town of Richmond, Tasmania. It was designed by architect John Lee Archer and built with convict labour. It was completed in 1836 and consecrated by Bishop Broughton in 1838. The building is primarily in the Romanesque style with semi-circular windows, although the pointed arch stained glass window with tracery in the chancel is Gothic in style. The timber work inside the building was done by convict James Thompson, who was granted his freedom as reward. The ceiling of the church feature timber trusses, derived from Old French ‘trousse’: ‘a collection of things bound together’.
