Description

Christ Church is in the centre of the Tasmanian town of Longford and was designed by Launceston-based architect Robert de Little. The Anglican church was built between 1839 and 1844, with the crenellation on the tower added in 1960 (the tower was previously topped by a pitched roof). The building is in the Gothic Revival style and features buttresses, lancet windows, clock mouldings, blind windows, arched entrances, and an imposing square clock and bell tower with a crenelated parapet.
