One of the more imposing churches designed by an architect, James Fowler, who was from Louth.

Built in 1875 in late 13th century style, it has a spacious nave, and an ornate NW tower with a saddleback roof.

The church boasts a fine organ of 1878 which has recently been restored to its original state.
