This mission church was built in 1896 at the time of major restoration of the parish church in the village. It then stood out of use and derelict for many years.

It is located at NGR TF 334624.

The typical pointed windows of the former church were replaced on north and south sides of the building when it was converted into a village hall.

One of the former windows has been retained over the entrance at the west end of the building.

The interior of the former church gives generous space for a range of community activities. The original dividing wall between nave and chancel remains.

The greenstone church stands alone on the edge of the village. It is largely Decorated work.

The south porch tower is unusual for the county. The chancel clerestory and east wall date from the restoration of 1904-6.

Inside can be found old pews and screens along with fragments of what may have been an Easter sepulchre.

The chapel has been converted into a dwelling. One bay at the western end of the building has been demolished - perhaps to create ground space for parking. (Many chapels were built on plots very little larger than the footprint of the building.)
