In the 1820s, the Gothic Revival began to be considered as a serious style for more than country houses, rivaling the predominant Neoclassicism. One of the first areas in which the Gothic Revival emerged triumphant was church building. In the interior, the nave and aisles are completely vaulted in stone, thereby attempting to imitate Gothic not only in decoration but also in the structure.
