Long Description:
"The spire is central to the crossing and contemporary with the building. A lightning conductor from the spire is attached to the south side of the vestry wall to earth. The angle buttressed tower houses the bell chamber with two open hooded decorated apertures fitted with sounding/weather boards on each side, the tower corners are decorated by short pinnacles with two gargoyles to each wall. The hexagonal spire is adorned with three short vertical ventilators with small pitched tops, and the spire is crowned with a copper weathercock which also acts as the upper terminal to the lightning conductor."
