architect. Mainly harled; margins, porches and belfry all red

ashlar. Key-stoned basket-arched windows all 1763, inner

windows on long S elevation (flanking pulpit) heightened by

Crombie, windows to other elevations with cills lowered some

12" perhaps in 1st half of 19th century. Body of church is

fairly long and thick-walled. Open W porch has shouldered

doorway; birdcage belfry above (?by Crombie). Straight skews

with moulded skewputts; cross finial at W. All roofs covered

with graded slates.

Interior: good artisan monument dated 1757 with classical

ornament, on jamb E wall; pulpit has panelled front.

red ashlar corniced gatepiers with pyramidal caps; steps

enclosure against church E wall.

Notes

Ecclesiastical building in use as such. OSA gives 1764 as date of building. E-W orientation of body of church may indicate re-use of pre-Reformation fabric, but harling prevents further analysis. Change of Category B to A 22.2.88
