Church, 1825-7 by Rickman. Squared sandstone with slate roof. Comprises a
west tower, a nave with clearstorey and continuous chancel, and north and
south aisles. All openings are chamfered lancets with hoods. The 3-stage
tower has angle buttresses and a stone needle spire set back behind a
parapet. The spire has openings under gablets on 4 sides. The tower bell
openings are of one light, as are the windows of the 2nd stage. Above the
west doorway is a quatrefoil within a circular surround. To each side of
the lowest stage, filling the angle with the nave wall, is a projection
with parapet, diagonal buttress, and single-light window facing west. In
the angles between these projections and the aisle walls are lower
projections of square plan. The aisles each have 6 bays of paired lancets
separated by buttresses with offsets. The clearstorey windows are
similarly paired. At the east end, beyond the aisles, is a bay with a
single light to the chancel, and a single-storey projection in the angle
between the east aisle walls and the chancel. The east window is of 5
stepped lancet lights. Interior has 5-bay arcades with moulded pointed
arches, and piers of 4 clustered columns. The nave and aisles have ribbed
plaster vaults. The front of the west gallery, which carries an organ, is
carved with tracery decoration. There is no chancel arch, but the chancel
is enclosed by a carved timber screen which incorporates a pulpit on the
northern side.
