Comprises an aisleless nave, west porch, north and south transepts, lower chancel with apsidal east termination, north projection in the angle between transept and chancel, with a similar vestry or chapel projection on the south side under a pitched roof. Neo-Norman style, with round-headed windows which have alternating red and yellow sandstone voussoirs, a string course below their sills, and iron glazing bars forming a pattern of linked circles. The central part of the west wall projects slightly and has a gabled porch with a round-arched doorway with angle shafts. Above are 3 round-arched roll-moulded lights under a single-arch. The gable is coped with a cross finial. The nave is of 5 bays separated by buttresses. Both transepts have a rose window above 2 single light windows. The south projection has a round-headed south doorway, and 2 windows facing east. There are 3 pairs of round-headed apse windows. INTERIOR: the nave is now reduced to 2 bays and has a wide roof of arch-braced trusses (now strengthened with steel) with king posts and raking struts above the collars. On each side are 3 rows of purlins with windbraces to the lowest. Over the transepts and crossing are similar trusses, with principals rising diagonally to support a belfry. The jambs of the chancel arch have three-quarter round mouldings. The arch has an inner chamfered order carried on corbels and an outer order matching that of the jambs.
