Church essentially of 1828/9 (on the site of a 1688 church), but refronted and extended in 1868. Ham stone ashlar main facade, with a roughcast return along Petters' Way; hipped Welsh slate roof. A 2-storey 3-bay facade in semi-classical style, with deep plinth incorporating door to lower ground floor on left-hand side: a flight of 12 steps with wing walls leads to a recessed porch with a 3-bay Doric portico in antis, with console keystones and alternate colours of stone; the centre shafts having Corinthian caps. Matching single windows to sides at both levels, with brackets to cills at ground floor level and recessed aprons to first floor. String course with shallow dentils lining through with porch, and full dentilled cornice with plain parapet over. The return along Petters' Way is of 3-bays, with quoins in the middle of the wall denoting the extent of the 1868 addition. The interior not inspected.
