Built: 1859, to design by J. Clayton

1. The church is a mixture of Victorian and earlier 20th century build and retains virtually nothing of its pre-19th century predecessor, the only medieval being a font. Surviving features from the Victorian edifice include the tower and spire and the aisle windows, which belonged to the nave before the enlargement, while the west window in the north aisle was formerly at the east end. A school room was added in 1878.
