    1. It was built on land owned by Simeon Pearce and it is thought it was probably designed by himself. Edmund Blacket is thought to have designed the internal fittings and was associated with some latter aspects of the building.

    1. Yes, they have extended the church a number of times but they have always been sympathetic additions.
