Summary Description

The church was designed by the noted architect Benjamin Ferrey and built in 1850. It is a small Victorian Gothic building, almost hidden from view by mature trees within the churchyard. This is a modest design, not one of Ferrey’s major works. The architectural style is Decorated of the early 14th century. Limited vertical emphasis is given by the 3-stage flint and stone belcote at the west end, and the nave and lower chancel roofs are quite steeply pitched, with finial crosses to the gables. The church stands on a stone plinth and there is a string course at window cill level. There are angle buttresses at both ends, and buttresses of one steep weathering to the end bays.
