Roman Catholic Church, 1856 by I. & C. Hansom (Pevsner). Rock-faced sandstone with steep
slate roof. Comprises a seven-bay nave and one-bay chancel with continuous
steep slate roof. The bays are separated by buttresses with offsets. The
nave windows are of 2 pointed lights with a quatrefoil over. The chancel
is lit by 2 narrow windows with cusped lights and a trefoil. The entrance
is in the 6th bay from the east, through a doorway with moulded surround
and 2-centred head. In the east wall is a window with geometrical tracery.
The west wall has diagonal buttresses, with a central buttress with
offsets partly supporting an open octagonal bellcote on a square base with
an octagonal pointed stone cap. Inside there is a west gallery of pitch
pine with organ, a chancel arch of 2 chamfered orders, a carved stone
reredos, and an open timber roof with very slender scissor-braced trusses.
The glass in the east window is said to be by Hardman (Pevsner).
