Summary Description

The church follows the type of the much-publicised St. Mary Magdalene, Munster Square, London, designed by R.C. Carpenter in 1849. It has a broad, high nave with wide aisles on north and south, and no clerestory since the aisles stand under their own steeply-pitched gabled roofs. There is a well-proportioned chancel, and a tall tower surmounted by a graceful spire stands at the end of one of the aisles. The style throughout is Decorated, and some aisle windows have intersecting tracery, others tracery of a sexfoil above three equal lights.
