Consecrated in 1862, this church retains its modest form and size. Its design is enhanced and enlivened by subtle dressed and cut limestone features, including the quoins, finials, belfry, copings, window surrounds and chimneystack to sacristy. Together with the stained glass windows, these features add artistic interest to the site.
