The tower is low, of three stages with heavy stone cornice with plain brick parapet above and surmounted by a slated pyramidal spirelet. The later work is in a plainer darker red brick, and consists of a chancel, south chapel, long 5 bay north aisle, vestry and hall. It has C13 style double-light windows with trefoiled heads and quatrefoil above. The chancel east window is a five-light one based on the same pattern. Now redundant.
