Description

The church dates to 1768 and is attributed to Thomas Atkinson. The church is ruined, with the full-height west wall remaining, as well as the foundations of the nave, chancel walls, transepts and the tracery of a window.

The west wall has a central Tudor-arched entrance, flanked by niches with crocketed ogee heads and a finial. Above is a three light window with tracery. On either side of the wall are stepped buttresses with gabled caps and topped with crocketed pinnacles. At the apex of the west wall is a bellcote.
