The Church consists of a nave with a bellcote and short chancel.

The walls are of coursed lias stone. The roof is slate with cable copings.

The bellcote to the West gable has set-offs and a cross over.

The main door is in the West gable end and has a two centred arch which is chamfered, as are the jambs.

This is a double door with ornamental strap hinges and there is a light stone mullioned window with plate tracery above it, and a trefoil stone window above that.

The side walls have four pointed arch windows with straight chamfers.


The church is officially designated as a Chapel of Ease and was erected in the 1860’s to meet the needs of the Broadoak working community.
