History and Architecture:

The first church was built in 1852, designed by Edmund Wright and built by Henry Moseley.2 In 1881 it was announced that the old church was to be demolished. The replacement, again to the design of Wright, was to be built in sections commencing with nave and chancel.

The western porch (1924) is the last structural addition. Squared stone walls, openings are pointed Gothic and stained glass. Buttresses and stone quoins are stucco finished.
