K té bylo na západní stranu pristaveno gotické knežište a k presbytári byla pripojena lod o trech okenních osách. Z roku 1850 pochází ctyrboká vež. V soucasné dobe slouží kostelík jako poutní místo - je zde instalována krížová cesta. Podle legendy jsou v kameni u vchodu otisky kolen sv.Petra, modlícího se pri zániku obce Byšice.
