Within its segmental pediment is an inscription: "This steeple was built

at the base of the tower is thought to be medieval. The nave is of five bays
of blue bricks recessed between red brick attached piers with a similar eaves
band carried on a corbel table. The windows are paired chamfered lancets with
red brick surrounds and with iron lattice glazing. On the south side the east
bay is covered by a porch under a pitched roof. This has paired east windows
similar to those of the nave. On the north side the east bay is covered by a
rendered addition. Against the north-side of the tower there is a rendered
porch and vestry. The east wall of the chancel has three lancet lights.
