Parish church. Mainly c1300, C14 transepts, restorations of 1879 and 1884 by
Colson, when the walls were roughcast and dormers were inserted. Walls roughcast
with a variety of buttresses, simple Gothic windows of the restoration period.
Tile roof, gabled dormers to the nave, west end bell turret with boarded walls and
broach spire. Aisleless nave and chancel, with north and south transepts,
Victorian vestry and south porch (set in the angle with the transept). The interior
is plain with mainly Victorian fittings: there is a pulpit with Tester of 1630, a
Norman font on pillars, and a fragment of C14 wall painting, representing a ship.
A feature of the interior is the continuous line of roof timbers, crossing the
Transepts on coupled wall plates, another is the massive timber frame of the bell
turret at the west end of the nave. One wall monument of 1757.
