18th and 19th centuries. T-plan parish church with mainly
round-headed windows, gallery forestair and porches in
re-entrant angles, gable-head birdcage belfry over N jamb,
vestry and porch adjoin E and N gables respectively. 2 burial
enclosures (including fine renaissance Mossknowe enclosure -
listed separately) adjoin at W. Church built of red rubble,
ashlar dressings and margins; roofs covered with graded
slates, red ridging tiles, finials over E and W gables.
Suggested building sequence: E and W gables and N wall of
body of church probably 1733; "partly rebuilt" (NSA) circa
1778, i.e. (presumably) heightened several courses and long S
wall rebuilt (forming deeper plan church) with voussoired
key-stoned and aproned windows and narrow base course; N jamb
perhaps contemporary (though openings originally
square-headed). Renovated 1892 - N porch, roof with ridging
tiles and belfry all date from then.
INTERIOR: mostly probably by (?William) MacGowan, 1835. 3
galleries with panelled fronts and each supported on 2
slender cast-iron columns; octagonal pulpit central on south
wall, with round-arched back board.
CHURCHYARD: Circa 1796 rusticated Irving of Woodhouse
enclosure abuts jamb; red ashlar, white marble inscription
Plain red ashlar enclosure at SW end of churchyard.
Churchyard enclosed by ashlar-coped rubble built walls, gates
at N and at W with square gatepiers. Mainly 18th and 19th
