It was built in 1857. Aisles were added in 1870. A lady chapel designed by H B Walters was added in 1891. An organ chamber lies opposite the lady chapel. The nave has five bays and the triple chancel arch has a wrought-iron screen.
The building, in flint with stone dressing, was given Grade II listed status in November 1976, protecting it from unauthorised alteration or demolition, but is on Historic England's Heritage at Risk Register, due to its "slow decay" with "no solution agreed". The former bell-turret has been dismantled due to its poor condition, but the building's listed status legally requires its reinstatement.
The church contained an organ dating from 1891, by William Hill & Sons, which was removed, and replaced by another from the same maker in 1906. Specifications for the latter can be found on the National Pipe Organ Register.
