Church. 1873-5 by Giles and Gane for Henry Boyd, vicar of neighbouring St Marks from which the new parish was detached. Yellow stock brick with red rubbed window arches and bands, stone dressings, slate roof. The church is orientated northwards, the direction of the liturgical eastern apse.

Paired lancets to nave linked by bands; 2-light plate tracery to transepts; in the apse an arcade of lancets under stone hoods with banding and floreated roundels, alternately pierced. Between the transepts on line of chancel is a single stone buttress, above which rises an octagonal timber fleche. The interior has two five-bay arcades with roll mouldings and hoods, stylised floral capitals. Elaborate timber roof with turned tie-beams, king posts, collars and bracing. Chancel denoted by paired truss on stone columns on pointed stops reminiscent of the style of William Butterfield. Open ironwork screen to south transept; the north divided from the first to include vestries and organ chamber. The pulpit, lectern, litany desk and communion rails of wrought iron date from the 1890s. The chancel apse is entirely panelled with stone arcading in three tiers, filled c.1893 with mosaics, the tall middle range depicting the twelve apostles with at their centre a reredos showing the Ascension. The three east lancets depict St Luke, Christ and St Cedd, c.1950. Source. Council for the Care of Churches, report December 1980.
