Roman Catholic church, dated 1794, although facade said to be of 1835

single-storey ashlar porch has a moulded pediment and a doorway with round
head, keystone, and impost band. The side windows have plain stone

tracery. Inside the porch there is an inner doorway with an architrave and
a Latin inscription below a pediment. An oval plaque is inscribed:
'MDCCXCIV'. A west gallery is carried on fluted columns. At the east
attached marbled Corinthian columns support an entablature above which is
