In the Romanesque style. A chapel stood on the site in 1840 and this was later built upon by Preb. William Poole (1875-1903) who beautified the building, with JP Seddon employed as architect. Edward Burne-Jones and William Morris stained glass in the window of the 'Angel of Doom'. The replacement of the organ revealed a mosaic of a peacock, previously hidden since the 1920s.
