Foundation stone laid 6th May 1866. Designed by and endowed at the expense of James

Nave, chancel, lean-to aisles, "transepts", porches and west tower. Early English
style, with richly "Ecclesiological" interior.
1. Exterior. Boarded doors with ornamental wrought iron hinges. Viking-style wrought
iron boot scrapers.
2. Interior. Exceptional wood and brass lectern. Marble reredos. Good organ
chest, with ornamental wrought iron hinges and stencilled patterns. Good woodwork,

and delicate ironwork surrounding pulpit, to communion rail, and for curtains on
inside of porch doors.
