south porch, chancel and north vestry now porch. Nave: roofless, with two
window openings to eastern end of north wall; C12 single round-headed light

flank segmental-pointed-headed doorway to south. Chancel: south side contains
large traceried window mutilated at head and sill, late C14, four lights,

primitive incised decoration. Plain floor slabs dating from late C17 and
