History

The church was built between 1860 and 1862 to designs of the architect George Edmund Street, funded by Sir Thomas Percival Heywood, 2nd Baronet. At the same time, Street also designed the Lychgate, churchyard cross, vicarage and village school.

Fittings

The font on four marble columns is by Street, with carvings of four angels on each corner holding reversed jars to symbolise the four Rivers of Paradise by Thomas Earp.

The pulpit, chandeliers and wrought-iron screen are also by Street. There is stained glass by Clayton and Bell.

Organ

The church has an organ which originally was built by Nicholson & Son in 1868 with the organ case by George Edmund Street. A specification of the organ can be found on the National Pipe Organ Register.

Churchyard

The churchyard contains the war grave of a Colonel of the Manchester Regiment of World War I.
