Parish church. Early C12 Norman cruciform plan with central tower, early C13

restoration of 1870 by Ewan Christian and of 1906-22 by Sir Ninian Comper. Walls

and C15. Norman west door of recessed orders, with zigzag ornament: notable
central tower with triple arcade to the bell stage and circular openings above,
capped by a broach spire. Slate roof, leaded to tower and nave. Inside, the C13
moulded arches have circular columns between chancel and chapel and octagonal
columns in the nave, both with moulded caps and bases. The reveals of Norman
windows remain in the east and west sides of the south transept. Traces of
medieval painting. The pulpit (1706) came in 1906 from the Church of the Holy
Trinity, Minories, London (which was dismantled in 1899), being of octagonal form

in the south chapel) of the C18 and early C19. The font bowl from Westbury
Chapel is in the south aisle. The church is famous for its Tournai font.
