Parish church. C12, C13, c.1400, restored and enlarged 1858, by Woodyer. Stone
and rendered walls, with a tile roof. Nave of 3 bays with a north aisle, chancel
and large north vestry, west tower and south porch. Plain roof, taller to
the chancel, separate to the vestry, and brought to a very low eaves over the
windowless north aisle. The nave walls are cement-rendered, and there is a 3-
light Perpendicular window on each side of the porch: the chancel and vestry
have polygonal masonry, with stepped buttresses, varied Gothic windows (the
east window having curvilinear tracery), band, plinth. The lower part of the
tower is C13, with 3 lancets, the upper C14, with small quatrefoil bell-stage
openings, the walls being rendered, and the roof a shingled broach spire. The
south porch of 1634 is of brickwork in Flemish bond with blue headers, with small
oval side lights, and a front with a 2-centred pointed arch within a projecting
frame, topped by a brick band and a moulded pediment. Inside, the arcade (of
later plain round arches) rests on circular piers, the western bay with scalloped
caps, the eastern bays moulded, and there is a small Norman north door (blocked).
The ceiling is flat between tie beams, but at the east end is arched with moulded
wall-plates. The chancel is Victorian Early English. There is a classical wall
monument (of 1770) in the nave, a panelled C18 pulpit, a bowl font meting on 4
C13 capitals, other fittings being Victorian. Gilbert White (of nearby Selborne)
was a curate 1761-85.
