with aisles and very short chancel; gallery at north end. School

stone steps. Single lancet window to each aisle. Buttressed 7-bay
sides, diagonal buttresses at corners. Plain lancet to each bay
with square headed window to undercroft.
Interior: high 7-bay aisle arcades orginally had slender iron
columns, now encased in Norman style C20 piers. Flat panelled nave
ceiling; transverse Tudor arches to aisles. Moulded pointed
chancel arch with triple attached jamb shafts. Panelled lobby with
gallery over at north end, gallery front having some openwork
carved tracery. South (liturgical east) chancel window has good
stained glass, probably by Henry Payne. Coloured glass margins to
aisle windows All fittings appear contemporary although some re-
ordering has taken place. Plain iron railings run along roadside
to west, gateway having panelled stone octagonal piers with moulded
caps; contemporary iron gates. Church built when ecclesiastical
parish of Minchinhampton sub-divided.
