Description

Description

The building is a Grade II* listed Georgian Church dating from 1771, the chancel was added in 1884. The new facility includes a worship area which is regularly used for church services. Many of the original features have been kept and part of the project involved replacing the west gallery which had been removed, thus restoring the original proportions of the church.
