Summary Description

The elevation follows much of the early Manx style. The south elevation has at ground floor level five half-round arch window openings set in red sandstone frames and surrounds along the wall of the nave. Each frame has two lights with bar tracery. Overhead and in line are five similar windows to the gallery. Between the nave and the tower is a small half octagon shaped stair turret and a gabled projection which gives direct access to the southern gallery. The north elevation is similar except for a projection which has three large half-round arch windows also set in red sandstone. The main entrance door at the west end is deeply recessed. A projection from the main wall face continues to the first stage of the tower. Above this is a small oculus and there are half-round window openings in each face of the belfry which are louvred. The top of the tower is embattled. The sanctuary wall has three elongated half-round arch stained glass windows set in red sandstone. There are smaller and similar style windows either side in the return walls of the nave. The floor of the chancel has been raised four feet to create a bridge over existing graves. At the apex of the gable to the sanctuary is a wheel cross.
