Summary Description

This is a very fine church indeed, designed in its totality by John Hayward, a pioneer architect of the Ecclesiological Movement, in the Decorated Gothic style. It is a good early and complete example of a church which adheres to their principles. The Victorian church is cruciform in plan, with the tower rising from the north transept. It is predominantly of snecked grey limestone and larger ashlar blocks.
