Church. 1829-32. By Thomas Rickman and Hutchinson. Later work
c1882 by John Bevan and 1905 by WV Gough. Bath stone ashlar
with a slate-roofed nave and leaded aisles. Chancel and aisled
nave. Perpendicular Gothic Revival style.
Small semi-hexagonal apse with pointed windows, beneath a
crenellated, gabled end with angled buttresses and a large
Perpendicular E window. The N aisle is 4 bays, with
segmental-headed windows between weathered buttresses, and a
coped parapet ending with crocketed pinnnacles; at the W end
is an arched doorway; 2-light clerestory windows. Similar S
elevation. The W front has a pair of crenellated octagonal
towers of openwork tracery flanking 3 Tudor-arched doorways,
the largest in the middle within a label mould with chamfered
reveals and quatrefoils in the spandrels; above is a large
5-light window similar to the E end, and a traceried
balustrade with open merlons and a cross finial to the top of
the gable.
INTERIOR: all fittings have been removed and a floor inserted
near the top of the nave arcade. This consists of 4-bay arcade
of square piers without capitals and pointed arches, with
slender stanchions between for the absent gallery. Flights of
stairs lead up either side from the narthex. An early
Commissioners' church, now put to community use.
