Appraisal

This attractive church building, possibly designed by Joseph Welland, has been sensitively converted to living accommodation and still retains much original and early fabric. Finely crafted masonry construction makes the building a landmark feature in the village, being situated at the head of a T-junction. It is a fine representation of mid-nineteenth century church design at the heart of the community.
