The spire predates the rest of the church. The church is the Garrison Church of the Lancashire Fusiliers and the Regimental Colours hang in the nave.

The stonework of the nave includes over 150 heads many of which are said to represent members of the congregation and the community at the time of building the church.

The stained glass in the north aisle contains representations of Old Testament figures and those in the south aisle New Testament figures.

The colourful Epiphany reredos was restored in 2008.
