rock-faced grey Plymouth stone with cream freestone dressings
and belfry.
STYLE: Middle Pointed.
PLAN: Rectangular aisled plan.
EXTERIOR: chamfered capping to the rock-faced plinth. The
coped gable to the south front with a restored fretted cross,
has a large circular window of 8 trefoiled circles surrounding
a central circle with 8 daggers to the tracery. The coped
gabled central porch has a pointed arch, with a large
quatrefoil to the tympanum, over a flight of steps flanked by
leaded lights to arcades of pointed arches on stepped plinths.
To the south-east corner is a forward-facing off-set buttress
crowned by a niche, gabled at eaves level, with a heavy square
crocketed finial above. To the left of the porch is an
octagonal tower to the belfry with leaded lancet windows. Each
facet is gabled with trefoil-headed openings flanked by
colonnettes on a moulded plinth.
The right return (east) has 4 gables each with a 2-light
pointed-arched window and steeply weathered sills. A lower
similar 5th bay toward the north end, possibly a vestry is

gable is a canted set-back range with circular cinquefoil
stained-glass windows to south and east and a hipped roof
flattened at the eaves, to the nave.
The north chancel end is a canted bay with a 3-light window to
the north flanked by 2-light windows under a hipped roof with
a wrought-iron finial. The left return (west) has clerestory
windows and a low gabled block with a 3-light window to the
left return. The presbytery attached to the rear left is
similar in style with C20 additions.

the right and a sacristy to the left; a former baptistery to
