The church was built in 1906-1907 by E. S. Prior. Pevsner calls it 'One of the architecturally most interesting building and successful churches of its date in England'. The architecture is Neo-Gothic in style and is built of grey, rough Marsden stone with a big tower (which is above the chancel) and a fine Lych Gate.

 

The windows are of essentially Gothic shapes but the tracery is of a style of its own, the short joining section tend to linear rather than classic medieval curves. It must be a satisfying pleasure in itself, to approach this great church, for a Sunday service on a bright sunny such as today! (Friday April 16th 2010).

 

Unfortunately the church wasn't open for viewing and I can't wait to return to see for myself.
