St Bertoline's is a 15th-16th century Perpendicular church with chancel rebuilt by Austin and Paley in 1925-26. It has a four-bay nave with aisles and clerestorey and a north porch; a chapel (the Crewe Chapel) of c.1528 on the south side of the chancel and a vestry on the north side. The oldest feature, however, is an elaborate 12th century doorway.
