The main part of the church was built in 1857-8 to the design of Sir George Gilbert Scott, the upper part of the tower and spire being completed in 1861-2.
Key internal features include the great wheel window at the west end of the church, filled with fine stained glass by Wailes and Co of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, depicting the heads of the twelve Apostles with the head of Our Lord at the centre, dating from 1869.
