This red brick church, in a free form gothic style with lancet windows, was designed by P H Tree and built in 1896. There is a rather natty south west tower with a thin spire.
And another view from the side.
There are numerous foundation stones in the walls, it seems everyone wanted to be remembered!
This stone was laid by Mrs J. Snowball May XIth 1892
