Note 2: [Built] 1829. Set in a large graveyard full of rustically classical C19 memorials. Square plan, with hipped roof on deep eaves. Three-bay front with tall flanking round-arched windows. The interior is of c. 1880. The three-sided gallery with long panels of pretty cast-ironwork divided by fluted pilaster strips. Pulpit to rear. Could this refitting be by the Rev Thomas Thomas?
