Rectangular plan under 3-span roof, plus chancel and attached offices.

Each side piece has one tall lancet with a hoodmould, and a parapet and shallow hipped roof. The 7-bay sides have buttresses, a 2-centred arched doorway in the 1st bay with a window above, and tall coupled lancets in the other bays, all these openings with hoodmoulds which have figured and foliated stops. The 2-bay chancel (altered as garage at ground floor) has an east window of 3 tall stepped lancets with foliated shafts, and pinnacles like those at the front; and flanking one-bay offices in similar style. INTERIOR: remodelled but retains aisle arcades of very tall slender clustered shafts with moulded caps and roll-moulded 2-centred arches, and at ground floor of west end a 3-bay arcade of polished columns with carved foliated caps.
