Summary Description

Of the original church of 1843 only the tower remains. The rest of the building consisted of a nave with shallow transepts and rather a short chancel, and vestries, all with details in a Perpendicular style. The tower seems to be based on Somerset examples, but by comparison with most it is too tall for its breadth, giving a rather attenuated appearance.
