This small church was built in 1828.  The gabled porch has a pointed arch surmounted by a sandstone cross.

Above a roundel, is the bellcote, with louvred sides and a flat top, formerly battlemented.

St Nicholas is built of red brick - laid in Flemish bond - with painted ashlar dressings.

The windows are in Gothic style throughout, and there is a tiny facetted chancel at the east end.

At the east end, the simple chancel arch has smaller blank arches to each side.

The plastered walls are lined to resemble ashlar.
