Sir George Gilbert Scott completed this church restoration between 1856-7 for the former rector, the Rev I Smith. His work included a new chancel, new west window and an east window by Hardman, (paid for by James Lane Wright), new floor tiles and much carving throughout, particularly in oak. New fittings included a font and pulpit both in stone with granite shafts, choir stalls and nave seating. The old font was kept alongside the new one.
