Church of St Mary
Church. 1862. E B Lamb. Stone. Slate roof. Cruciform but with centralised emphasis
created by the spacious crossing which incorporates the short transepts and is of
greater width than the aisleless nave and tiny chancel. South porch. The exterior is
dominated by the complex roof arrangements:- the pyramidal roof of the crossing,
starting at a lower level to accommodate the wider span, is cut by the transepts rising
through it and truncated by a turret with spirelet. Interior:- wooden roof to nave
and chancel with transverse arches on stone corbels, collars and purlins. Complex
crossing roof structure of intersecting arches, leaving room only for pairs of tiny
quatrefoil lights set into each corner of the crossing. The other windows are 3-light
with trefoil heads and simple tracery under pointed arches with the exception of the
low flat-arched nave windows.
