It was built in 1856-7 to designs of R K Penson and features Geometrical tracery. Constructed of roughly coursed Pennant sandstone with Bath stone dressings under slate roofs, it consists of nave and chancel in one, and overhanging west bell gable; a gabled south aisle and porch were added in 1882 by J Bacon Fowler. The arcade is cut through the wall, and supported on circular piers of pink sandstone conglomerate. There is a crucifix mosaic by John Petts. Stained glass includes works by Jones & Willis.
