Church. 1881 by J. D. Sedding. Coursed squared rubble with ashlar quoins,
bands and dressings. Tiled roof. Nave and chancel in one with organ chamber

chamber is integral with the open porch under a hipped, sprocketed roof. A
projection at the west end (for the baptistry) supports two buttresses which
support a bellcote. A small light between the buttresses and a slit window
to each side. At the east end a raised ashlar panel rises as 2 buttresses
with a square-headed window in an arched surround. A slit window to each
side and one in the apex.
Plain interior, the nave of 3 large bays with 4 collared trusses whose tie-
beams are arch-braced to wall posts which are, in turn, arch-braced to wall
plates in the farm of an arcade. Waggon roof to the 2-bay chancel. Font in
arched recess at west end.
