22/05/73 (Formerly listed as St.
Church. 1867 by William Butterfield. Polychrome brick with limestone-ashlar
dressings; plain-tile roof. Nave, north aisle, chancel and south porch.
Gothic-revival style. Short chancel has, to east, 3 trefoil-headed lancets under
a hood mould; to north, 3 grouped lancets and, to south, a small hipped-roofed
vestry with narrow windows with shouldered arches. Nave has, to south, 2
paired lancets under hood moulds, plus a single lancet near the porch. The outer
arch of the porch is pointed segmental and of 2 chamfered orders. The central
section of the nave west wall breaks forward to contain the 3-light window, with
early-Decorated tracery, and rises to a buttressed and gabled double bellcote
with 2 shouldered arches. The nave roof continues over the narrow north aisle
which has only a sexfoil window to east and a small lancet to west. All walls
are in yellow stock brick with banding in light-red and flared bricks, and have
diapering in the upper parts. The gables of the porch and bellcote and the
spandrels of the east window, are in patterned unbonded work. Interior: chancel
walls have polychrome interlacing diapering, and the north window has detached
Purbeck-marble shafts. The responds of the brick chancel arch are probably of
slate. The 7-canted roof is panelled over the sanctuary bay. The nave has wall
patterning similar to the exterior, and has a 4-bay wooden north arcade with
solid spandrels rising to an arcade plate: the roof has arch-braced collar
trusses. C19 fittings including font and reredos. Contemporary stained glass in
chancel and c.1893 in south windows of nave.
