Church. 1838-40. By Sharpe for the Church Commissioners.
Watershot stone with slate roof. Nave and aisles under one

and coped gables and eaves. 7-bay aisles have thin
weathered buttresses (set back at corners), a gallery door
in the west bay (now blocked) and lancet shaped windows but
with two lights and geometrical tracery - an early example of
the revival of this type. 1-bay chancel with 4-light east
window. 3-stage tower has octagonal corner piers which are
buttressed and rise as pinnacles, windows (as above) to the
second and third stage and a clock aperture in stage two.
Interior: chamfered nave arcade on octagonal columns with
moulded heads. Coved ceiling. Alabaster font in the form of
an angel holding a shell. Organ by Renn. Stained glass by
Lightfoot. Carved timber pulpit, reredos and organ casing.
