This is the parish house of St John the Baptist in Bathwick, a Victorian church in an awkward site because the site formerly belonged to a medieval church that had been bulldozed in 1808 because it was no longer picturesque enough to merit repair. Here you see on the extreme left the typical Victorian Welsh Slate Roof with clay tile ornamental ridge caps. In the centre (left of the parish hall gable) you see simple clay pantiles. The final elevation of the porch (right of the gable) has the iconic “Double Roman” pantile. Click to enlarge.

  1. wonder if anyone will click to enlarge?

  2. Did click. Did enlarge. But the distinction between the simple clay pantiles and the Double Roman pantiles is a very fine one. I missed it.
