The church is Victorian, an example of Gilbert Scott’s architecture with the building completed in 1851. In 1887 the four bells were made up to eight (26cwt) by Taylors. They were replaced in 1912 by a fine ring of 10, cast by the local firm of Gillett & Johnson. These bells remain today, with two new trebles cast by Whitechapel and installed in February 2002 by Whites of Appleton, and are readily available for Saturday peals and other visitor ringing.
