lowest section has two small semi-circular headed windows, one above
the other, on the west face. The lower window is stone dressed with
lead lattice glazing, the upper is a brick opening with stone sill and
square leaded glazing. Above the first band there is a weathered
stone tablet, under a moulded cornice, which is surmounted by a clock
set in a projecting circular stone frame. Other tower faces, at this
level, have glazed circular openings with wooden crossed mullions. At
bell stage there are stone dressed semi-circular headed openings with
springers, keys, and louvre infilling. There is a parapet band and a
low brick parapet with stone cornice and pyramid corner pinnacles.
The nave walls have a weathered stone plinth and large semi-circular
headed stone dressed windows with stained glass or leaded glazing.
The south nave door opening is rusticated and its semi-circular head
is filled with oak bead and flush radial panelling. There are a pair
of six panel bead and flush doors below. The east end is a canted
chancel-apse with stone dressed semi-circular headed stained glass
window and flat roof. A C20 vestry with hipped slate roof has been
added at the north-west end of the church.
Interior: Semi-circular plastered apse, with hemispherical ceiling
springing from a deep wooden cornice, which is supported by reeded
Corinthian capped pilasters which flank the east window and the
opening. The apse is flanked by a three panel high dado which is
surmounted by a semi-circular headed blind arcade with the four panels
separated by slender Corinthian capped shafts. The wall dressing is
completed by a carved panel frieze and console supported cornice. The
sanctuary has a white marble and mosaic floor and there is an astragal
moulded communion rail on six turned shafts. Panelling in choir
extends up to window arch springing line. Stone based, polygonal oak
pulpit with semi-circular headed sunk panels and reeded Corinthian
columns at angles. Highly carved lectern with cross roof base and
coupled shaft supports. Five C18 or C19 marble/stone wall memorials
