Narthex of three bays with colonnetted splayed doorway and panel on parapet giving date. Bronze doors in Arts and Crafts style. Above this a large wheel window with carved angel in the apex. The gable is complicated by a feature resembling a bell-cote. Organ loft has cross gable and five-light feature, two lights glazed. Small polygonal apse.

Interior: Stone, nave has arcades on round columns and passage aisles. Shallow timber roof on corbelled wall piers. Chancel has low walls forming pulpits and wooden choir stalls, those to south with canopies. Original light fittings, and stained glass windows by Burne-Jones.
