While there is snow at the The Church of the Ascension in Hall Green, thought I might as well get it with the stuff then.

This is The Church of Ascension in Hall Green. On the corner of Fox Hollies Road and School Road.

A Grade II* listed building dating to around 1703 or 1704.

Dated 1704 and possibly by Sir William Wilson; altered. Red brick with stone
dressings. Of the C18 the lower part of the projecting west tower and the nave,
3 bays long demarcated by giant Roman Doric pilasters carrying an entablature and
balustrade. Arched windows in moulded stone surrounds with impost blocks and
keystones. Quoins at the angles. In 1860 chancel and transepts were added in the
same style as the C18 work. Also probably of 1860 the upper part of the tower with
its octagonal brick turret with copper cupola. Interior with coved ceiling,
simple C18 pulpit and painted early C19 Royal Arms.
