Beneath, is the multi-moulded central doorway with three orders of nook shafts flanked by upper and lower pairs of trefoil-headed, multi-moulded blank arches. South return has single lancets with plain chamfered heads and nook shafts; stepped buttress bay divisions.

To North the Community centre, formerly Church, of 1837 by John Dobson, related in design: 5 stepped lancets in gable end under relieving arch and dripmould. Projecting porch leads to North vestry with undercroft. Octagonal turret with short stone spire. This part now divided into two floors for community use but architectural features are retained.
