Church. 1874-6 with tower added in 1897. By J. M.and H.
Taylor. Rock-faced stone with slate roof. Nave, aisles,
chancel and west tower. Gothic Revival with Decorated
details. 4-bay aisles stop short of the nave at the west and
are roofed separately. They have a projecting plinth and a
continuous sill band. Each bay has a weathered buttress and
two 2-light windows. Gabled porch to north, the sill band of
the aisle continuing as a transom through cusped windows on
either side. The 2-bay chancel is unexpectedly higher than
the nave-and has a bellcote at the junction and a 5-light
east window. Imposing 4-stage tower with angled weathered
buttresses, west door, 4-light west window, paired 2-light
belfry openings and a broach spire set back behind a
parapet. Interior: double-chamfered nave arcade on short
circular columns with moulded and enriched capitals. Hammer-
beam roof trusses spring from carved corbels. Wide chancel
arch on quatrefoil columns. Pierced stone chancel rail
which cleverly incorporates the pulpit and lectern both of
which use coloured stone details. Carved reredos. C18
baluster font from former church. Stained glass some by
Wrigley and Hunt. Timber fittings. Several C18 and C19 wall
plaques. The church incorporates many of the architects'
characteristic details to good effect.
