History and Architecture:

Of Gothic-Revival design and built of red brick and sandstone in 1901 replacing an earlier building. It was opened in the following year. One of Alexander North's most successful architectural works. It has the chancel, transepts and crossing. He was born in Huddersfield, Yorkshire, England.

The building incorporates a five-bay aisled nave, with immense western tower and flanking apses, but only the transepts, chancel, chapel and vestries were initially built.  The present narthex was built in the 1980s on the site of the intended nave.

A Foundation stone reads, "Glory to God this stone was laid by Charles Kent Esq February 9th 1899 F. Hales Archdeacon of Launceston took charge of the Parish February 1st 1854".
