GV II*

Church: 1878-9 by J.L.Pearson. Tooled ashlar red sandstone, red tile roof. Later C13 style, 4-bay nave and north aisle, 2-bay chancel and vestry, central tower and north transepts. Gabled buttressed porch at left end of south side approached by 11 steps. 2-centred double-chamfered arched entrance on colonnettes. 2-light nave windows with quatrefoil plate tracery. Broad, sturdy tower divides nave and chancel and has a taller similar window in lowest stage, clock in the middle; the top stage has pairs of moulded 2-light louvred bell openings with line of corbelling above. Delicate band of ball ornament carries plain parapet with triangular coping. Lancets in the chancel, and the east end has a trio of tall windows with Y-tracery with a pair of blocked quatrefoils above. Interior: 4-bay arcade to north aisle whose columns become more ornate towards the sanctuary, from round to multi-shafted. Splayed reveals to aisle and nave windows, and wagon roof to nave. Crossing arches on clusters of colonnettes. Chancel has simple sedilia and oak reredos. Willis organ in the transept. The square font with quatrefoils probably comes from the earlier church of 1835.
