The foundation stone was laid on 26 December 1863, the architect being Benjamin Backhouse. When the walls were only a few feet high (ca. 1865), work was suspended owing to lack of funds. Work was resumed in the early 1870's and the church was opened on 17 May 1874. The spires were erected in 1884-1885. (Description supplied with photograph)
