Grade II listed church built on the north side of town in 1742, rebuilt 1909-11 by architect Sir Ninian Comper. The interior is a remarkably complete example of his work including the stained glass, pews and heavily enriched rood screen. He re-used items from the former church and incorporated them in his design. The church celebrated its centenary in February 2011.
