slated roof, One of twin (handed) chapels: Greek cross plan with added colonnade
porch to West: South transept in form of an angled chevet; Romanesque style with
some ploychromy. Corner buttressed porch has semi-circular headed entrance

split by a column and heavily cusped tracery. South elevation has cusped lancet
to 'nave' bay, then plate tracery in semi-circular arches to the chevet, a
further cusped lancet to 'chancel' bay; corner buttresses with Quasi-dentilled
eaves course. Triple window to East end, the centre light being divided

adequate on its own, its value is enhanced by the 'twin' opposite.
