Description

An interior view of Christ Church, Claremont in Western Australia. The neo-gothic style of the building is clearly visible in the pointed arches of the stained-glass windows, arcading and large chancel arch separating the rectangular nave from the octagonal chancel. The wooden pulpit and lectern are the work of William Howitt, a well-known Western Australian wood carver.

About Christ Church, Claremont:

Christ Church is an Anglican Church that was designed by Perth architect J. J. Talbot Hobbs and built in a Gothic Revival style. The foundation stone was laid on 10 September 1892, and the original church building (consisting of the Sanctuary and the eastern four bays of the nave) was completed in February 1893. The nave was extended in 1901, and in 1909 two aisles were added. Further extensions took place in 1938 when the vestry, porch and square bell tower at the western end were completed under the supervision of architect T. W. L. Powell.
