The triangular apse to the chancel has a foundation stone dated July 1884, and in each of its 2 sides two 2-light windows with cusped lights. Interior: very fine deeply arch-braced kingpost roof with wind-braced purlins, common rafters with collars, and diagonal roof boarding; 3-bay aisle arcade with short cylindrical piers and stepped 2-centred arches of brick (openings now filled with C20 glazed screens), and aisle (now church hall) with exposed wooden gable roofs; 2-centred chancel arch with polychrome voussoirs, on short quatrefoil piers; chancel with 2-bay south arcade of 2-centred brick arches (the centre open and Y-shaped); baptistry in canted apse at west end of nave.
