some stone dressings, slate roof. Romanesque style.
Rectangular plan on south-west/north-east axis. The 3-bay

and flanking the projected centre bay, all with stone false
machicolation and pyramidal roofs and those flanking the
centre of the west front including tall open-arcaded belfry
stages. The centre of the west front has a stone central
doorway, with chevron and lobed nook-shafts on scalloped
capitals, a band of elaborate triple-interlaced blind
arcading, an 8-light wheel window, a stone band on a corbel
table, and a louvred lancet roof ventilator in the gable apex;
the outer bays have single tall lancet windows with side
shafts and nailhead arches, brick hoodmoulds with run-out
ends, and bands like the centre. The east end centre bay has
stepped triple round-headed lancets, a stone band like that at
the front, and an oculus in the gable apex with corbel table;
and the outer bays have round-headed doorways with zig-zag
central order. The 4-bay side walls have pilaster strips and
simple corbel tables (like the ends), and 2 tall round-headed
lancets to each bay. Interior (as reported 15.10.84): 5 bays,
with quatrefoil cast-iron columns supporting a gallery fronted
with interlaced blind arcading; organ loft at west end, over
enclosed west bay. Later raising of choir to sanctuary with
round-headed chancel arch outlined by roll-mouldings; stone
reredos with 6-bay arcade, below stone-shafted lancets with
lobed over-arches on scallop capitals; open-arcaded roof
trusses; original box-pews and benches in gallery; late C19
stone pulpit. History: built for Dr Samuel Warren, who had
been expelled from the Wesleyan Methodist Connection; assigned
a district in 1842.
