Coursed squared gritstone with herring-bone tooling, ashlar details, steeply-pitched slate roofs with gable copings and crocketed finials. Gothic Revival style. PLAN: nave of 5 bays with S aisle and gabled porch, chancel with S door, N and S transepts, crossing tower. EXTERIOR: elaborate scrolled hinges to double doors; paired lancet windows to nave, 3 lancets to E window, 4 to W end, paired lancets with tall buttress between to transepts. 2-stage tower with stone broach spire, pinnacles, lucarnes and clock faces. INTERIOR: octagonal nave piers, carved bosses to corbels, high Gothic arched ribbed roof; tall moulded chancel arch; the chancel S door opens into a lobby area with the studded and decorated door to the tower stairs opposite. Original board doors, numbered pews. Octagonal stone font with niches, cover replaced, choir stalls and pulpit 1961. Other C19 features include: eagle lectern given by Mary Beckett, 1880; W window stained glass depicting prophets and apostles in memory of Sir Thomas Beckett of Somerby and Meanwood; N transept window in memory of Marian, wife of Thomas Wolryche Stansfield of Weetwood Grove, d.1861; S transept window in memory of Christopher Beckett of Meanwood, date lost; the E window glazing is a memorial to the founders, given by their brothers and sister, Sir Thomas Beckett bart., Edmund Denison, Henry Beckett and Fanny Marriott. S aisle windows: 2 commemorate Thomas Wolrych Stansfield of Weetwood Grove, died 15 December 1885; a fine pair of windows in Art Nouveau style in memory of Marian and Walter Rowley of Alder Hill, a knight of St John of Jerusalem, died 9 February 1926. A plaque on the N wall of the chancel records that the founders were daughters of Sir John Beckett bart, the Revd George Urquart vicar, Mr Thomas Midgley, churchwarden. The extensive use of the Beckett family name throughout the church compensates for the lack of any inscription on the family burial vault to the east (qv).
