Roman Catholic church. 1898-1901, by Sinnott, Sinnott & Powell. Yellow sandstone ashlar (tower snecked) with red sandstone dressings, slate roofs. STYLE: C13 Gothic. PLAN: tall nave on north-south axis, with south-east tower (uncompleted), east and west aisles, a baptistery at the south end and a triple transept at the north end of the west aisle, and a full-height apsidal north sanctuary with side offices to the west. EXTERIOR: the 2-bay south gable, with angle buttresses and a central buttress carried up to a statue of Our Lady in a niche, has two 2-centred arched doorways moulded in 2 orders and containing square-headed doorways, two 2-centred arched 3-light traceried windows with deep moulded reveals and hoodmoulds, a circular traceried window in the centre of the gable, a small triangular arched window above this, and gable coping with a cross finial. The tower to the right, rising above eaves level in 3 unequal stages, has coupled pointed-arched to the first, a pair of cusped lancets to the second, uncompleted belfry louvres to the 3rd, and a pyramidal roof. The baptistery to the left, with a pitched roof, has a large 2-centred arched traceried 3-light window with a hoodmould. The clerestory of the nave has large 2-centred arched traceried 3-light windows; the aisles and aisle transept have 2-centred arched one-light windows with hoodmoulds. The 5-sided sanctuary has gables over 3-light windows. The hoodmoulds of the windows have differing figured stops. INTERIOR: 6-bay arcades of 2-centred arches carried on polished granite columns which have capitals with unusually large naturalistic foliation (all different, but now painted); hammerbeam roof. A conservative design for the date.
