Appraisal

This church forms part of an interesting group of related structures with the belfry and elaborate railings to the site. The regular form of this church is enhanced by the imposing entrance elevation, which is well articulated in ashlar limestone. The breakfronts, blind arches and dressings are of apparent architectural design. Interior features, such as the stained glass windows add artistic interest to the church.
