Torquay limestone has been used with
Bathstone dressings and slate roofs.

The free Italianate Romanesque style chapel has
shallow chancel, gabled porch on ritual south side and shallow gabled transepts
towards the (ritual) west end.

Moulded impost string at sill level of chapel and
wide band under moulded string at the springing of the window arches which have
wide stone architraves.

Coped gables have order of blind round-headed east

Carved angel in (ritual) east gable of nave. 5 + 2 windows to (ritual) north
side with rose window in the gable of the transept.

Moulded stone chimney in

Porch on (ritual) south

window in gable with carved label stops.

Lean-to vestry on (ritual) south side
has round-headed doorway, 2 rectangular recessed windows and 2 circular windows in
wide stone architraves.

Addition at ritual west end gabled to west, preserves
Romanesque style but has no impost band. Ventilators under hipped slate roofs on
roof. Interior.
