string course at top surmounted by embattled parapet. 4 stubby
corner obelisk pinnacles. Ground floor has single west semi-
circular headed window with plain ashlar surround. Above is a
blank keyed oculus with a short section of chamfered string
course beneath. In the upper stage are single wooden latticed
semi-circular headed belfry lights in the 4 sides. North of
tower is a small C19 boiler house. Nave north wall has plinth,
plain eaves course and raised stone coped gable to lead roof.
Single 2 light window, the lights having semi-circular heads,

simple impost blocks, contained within a semi-circular headed
arch with raised keystone and chamfered plain reveals. Short
ashlar apse with plinth and moulded eaves course. Central

cavetto moulded surround with plinth blocks, moulded impost
blocks and raised triple keystone. Interior: a panelled
vestibule leads to nave, which has crude dado panelling and cyma

door with L hinges. This door together with panelling re-used in
the vestibule, and dado panelling to apse and pew ends is all
raised and fielded. Wide round headed arch to chancel with
single plain inner order. Of the original fittings, only the
pulpit and altar rails with their robust turned balusters
survive. Otherwise, the altar, lectern and font dated 1879 are
all C19. Fine C19 cast iron circular candleabrum with fleur de
lys brattishing and 4 three branch pew candlesticks with twisted
shafts and shamrocks. In the chancel is a monument to William
Dunkin, d.1838, in the form of a Greek altar with anthemion in
pediment and flaming urn with acanthus base above. In the
chancel are good stained glass windows, and the early nave
windows retain their delicate geometric lead cames.
