GV II

Church. 1841 by Edmund Sharpe, with south aisle added 1866. Squared coursed sandstone with green slate roof. Comprises a west tower, nave, south aisle, and lower chancel. On the north side is a transept, with a lower vestry in the angle with the chancel. In the angle between the main church and the chancel on the south side is a short gabled projection and a lean-to porch. The tower is of 3 storeys with clasping buttresses and corner pinnacles and has a pointed west doorway. Above are 3 narrow lancets. There are clock faces on the west and south sides. The bell openings are triple stepped lancets, with the parapets rising in a triangle above. The north wall of the nave is of 6 bays separated by buttresses and has paired lancets. The south wall is of 7 bays separated by buttresses and has windows of 2 pointed lights with foiled circles over, with the parapet rising as a coping to form a gable over each window. The east window is of 5 lancet lights with the tall central light flanked by foiled circles. The interior has exposed bolted queen post trusses ceiled at collar level, the south wallplate carried on a 7-bay arcade of slender timber octaonal columns with caps and bases and with curved braces rising to the plate. The west gallery has a panelled front and an organ which appears to have a C20 casing with re-set Royal arms. The chancel, which may be of a later date than the nave, has a pointed sandstone arch flanked by narrower arches, and an open timber roof with collars and arch-braced tie beams.
