Notable features

The main feature of this red brick Gothic Revival church building is a slender, striped octagonal bell tower which rises from the nave of the building to high above the steep roof and terminates in a spire. This feature overshadows the other side tower but does not detract from the double arched entrance or the main pointed window tracery over. Freestone dressings and cream brickwork relieve the overall red brickwork. The roof is of slate with a fleche at the intersection of the nave and transepts. Internally, cream bricks and exposed and coloured brickwork used in pattern strips. Overall the polychrome brickwork is particularly fine.
