Small chapel of three bays, and a nave and chancel. Rebuilt between 1865 and 1867 with the addition of south porch and bellcote. The nave roof is C14 and the roof is covered with sandstone slates. These are heavily overgrown with moss and ferns, decaying the slates. Holes have appeared in the slates covering both roof pitches.
