Transfiguration (St. Saviour), Coalville, Leicestershire

Description

The Roman Catholic church was a temporary building, Byzantine in style. It was erected through the generosity of the late Mr. Edwin de Lisle, and enlarged and furnished by the Rev. Joseph Degen. It is dedicated to St. Saviour (San Salvador) under the title of the Transfiguration. The high altar formerly belonged to the Reformatory school for boys, which was at one time connected with Mount St. Bernard's Abbey; there are references to this altar in Household Words by Charles Dickens.
