A flint and rubble church with a C15 west tower, the rest of the building was
rebuilt, probably on the old foundations in 1852 and 1879 and restored in the
early C20. It was rebuilt in the C14-C15 style. The west tower has a modern
parapet top and has been considerably restored. The fittings include a good
late C16 marble altar tomb with a panelled canopy and an inscription to Thomas
Meade, Justice of Common Pleas 1585. There are also 2 C16 brasses. The church
forms the central feature of the village. It is graded for its topographical
value and internal features. (RCHM 1).
