of Booton c.1850-1900. Flint with limestone dressings and detail, steeply pitched
plain tiled roofs. Twin diagonally-set west towers, nave, chancel, north porch,
south vestry, all in an eccentric French Gothic style. Window tracery generally
geometric; bays divided by staged buttresses with crocketted pinnacles. Gables
parapetted and coped and surmounted by elaborate crocketted pinnacles, that on the
west gable in three tiers with blank arcading. West towers with elongated blank
arcading in their lower stages surmounted by pierced frieze and crocketted corner
pinnacles. Tall sound openings with ogival heads. Moulded strings and eaves in
limestone; pierced stone eaves parapet on chancel. Set-back buttresses at corners
of nave and chancel. Priest's door in south wall of chancel With arch of five orders
and ogival crocketted hood surmounted by square label with quatrefoiled spandrels.
Doorway surmounted by elaborately-carved niche on clustered shafts. Fine west doorway
and window between towers. In the north porch, set in the east wall, a fine C14 Virgin
and Child (headless) discovered during Elwin's rebuilding works. Interior: spherical
triangular opening above chancel arch. False hammer-beam roof over chancel with arch-
braces on wall-shafts. Angel hammer-beam roof over nave with wall-posts on corbels
with stiff-leaf carving. Linenfold dado panelling around nave walls. Good C19 glass
in nave and chancel. Good C19 pulpit and fittings.
