Single-celled chapels linked to a central tower with carriage arch and spire; gabled porches to outer side of each chapel. Symmetrical. Gothic Revival style with decorated tracery. Chamfered plinth; angle buttresses with offsets and pinnacles (truncated). Tall carriage arch with hoodmould within gable having trefoil and traceried parapet. Ashlar offsets and diagonal buttresses to the tower; a tall single-light opening to each side has colonnettes, decorative iron transom bars and ogee hoodmould with finial. Offset base to octagonal spire with lucarnes. Links to each chapel have cusped lancets; doors beneath vaulted soffit of arch have shouldered lintels. Chapels: diamond-paned leaded lights to traceried 3-light windows with hoodmoulds; gables with traceried parapets; crested ridge tiles. The outer porches have buttresses, pointed arches and double doors within. Rear: chapels have 2-light windows and coped gables. Interior: some fittings remain in left chapel.
