1869-70 by Sir George Gilbert Scott. Flint and stone with a NE steeple carrying a broach-spire. Lancets and plate tracery. Low and dark interior with a S arcade. The chancel has a rose window in the E wall and shafted N and S windows, the shafts being detached. The altar composition seems entirely part of it, but dates from 1894.
