and a stone band which runs round the whole church at cill level.
The cornice is coved beneath a flat lead roof. The 6-panelled

hexagonally faced clock. The belfry openings have two lights under
a semi-circular head, with timber louvres. The west side of the
tower has one plain light, the north side is blank. The north
side of the nave has a coved cornice and a lead roof. The
fenestration consists of three C18 semi-circular headed lights with

the south nave wall fenestration matches that of the north.
Between the westernmost pair of windows is a sundial on a worn
stone tablet. Interior: the tower porch has a C18 stair with
turned balusters. In the nave the windows are surrounded with
plain moulded plaster architraves. The double doors to the tower
porch are in plain moulded architraves and the upper panels have
open tracery in the Chinese style. The chancel arch is a wide
semi-circle with a keystone and the apse behind has a domed
ceiling with plain coved cornice. The ceiling has been removed
from the nave to expose the C18 staggered butt purlin roof and
large tie beams. The chancel has Minton floor tiles. Monuments:

end are two painted inscriptions to "John Richardson Churchwarden,
