St Faith’s was built in Georgian style in 1715, to replace a medieval church.

James Fowler restored the building in 1869, restyling all the windows and adding the shingled broach spire.

The west front has angle pilasters, a doorway with a segmented pediment and a sexfoil window.

The arched balustrade and the bell turret above complete this rather grand classical design.

James Fowler added the broach spire in 1869.
