Church. Dated 1907, by Sir Robert Lorimer. Mixed red and orange Penrith
sandstone, coursed rubble walls, under graduated greenslate roofs with lead
rainwater heads and downspouts. 3-bay nave with south porch and square 2-storey

porch with pointed inner and outer arches. 2- and 3-light windows, that in west
wall of 5 lights. Battered tower has narrow round-arched doorway and projecting
angle turret. Square bell openings with almond-shaped fretwork, under shaped
battlements. West gable buttress has datestone. Interior has no fixed pews,
but has other fine woodwork; the linen-fold panelled doors, the barrel-vaulted
panelled ceiling and linen-fold panelled pulpit. Figurative stained glass in
one window by Morris & Co. 1906. This is not listed in Christopher Hussey's
