nave and aisles. Projecting plinth and corbelled eaves.
Angled corner buttresses and 2 flying buttresses to each
side. 3 (or 4 on north) 2-light aisle window. The principal
windows are at clerestory level and have 3-lights and
geometrical tracery. Coped gables with finials. A brick

recess. Interior: ashlar-faced chancel, terra-cotta nave.
Moulded terracotta nave arcade arches on quatrefoil stone
columns. King-post roof trusses but with a ceiling inserted
in C20. Stone font with richly carved cover. Timber

with rich detailing results in an unusual and interesting
