blue brick; in the gable a round window with 4 quatrefoils. Apse is semi-
circular, broken in the centre by a shallow bay with a gable above the eaves,

down through the aisles as passing braces from which rise arch braces to
scissor trusses, which are prolonged to the outer walls in the plane of the
aisle roofs. South gallery with Gothic-style pierced front. Stained glass
