About the church

Built: 1863 - 64
Architect: J L Pearson
Listing: grade 2*

The church is built in multicoloured brick, with limestone dressings and with slated roofs. It consists (liturgically) of a nave, chancel with apsidal sanctuary, north and south aisles, west porch, small south-west tower, separately roofed baptistry at the west end of the south aisle, south (organ) transept, Lady Chapel on the corresponding north side, and north-east vestries above cloakrooms. It is a notable work by the architect Pearson, though hardly on the same scale as St. Augustine's Kilburn, or Truro cathedral, also by him.
