Built between 1856-8 in red and black brick in Late Thirteenth Century style, with a north turret and apse, the church has divided commentators. Pevsner noted ‘It is a surprise that so COMME IL FAUT an architect should have yellow brick and red brick bands as the inner facing material’ while Muthesius says it is ‘a very rich treatment with arcades … linked with the masonry in a more constructional way’.
