Compact mid C19 composition by H Elliott (1856-60, 1864) over extended by
G Vialls (1881). Earlier work of red brick with polychrome brick details
and stone dressings. Consists of four bay nave, south aisle and transept,
and unusually positioned west tower at the end of the south aisle. The openings
mainly have simple trefoil heads with a pleasing composite 5 light window
to the nave west end. The south aisle and the tower ground floor west window
have plate tracety. The tower is low, of three stages with heavy stone cornice
with plain brick parapet above and surmounted by a slated pyramidal spirelet.
The later work is in a plainer darker red brick, and consists of a chancel,
south chapel, long 5 bay north aisle, vestry and hall. It has C13 style double-light
windows with trefoiled heads and quatrefoil above. The chancel east window
is a five-light one based on the same pattern. Now redundant.
