has 2 rectangular C15 transom and mullioned windows with carved hood-mould stops. The

a small C19 vestry. The south aisle is also C13, with an originally 2-storey porch to

capitals with leaf decoration, outer arch with lozenge-chains and inner with a roll.
Internally the tower arch is C11 but with a C15 arch fitted in to strengthen it. The
north arcade has 2 bays, round-arched with a sturdy pier with scalloped capital and
square abacus, billet in the hood-mould. The south arcade has C13 arches with stiff
leaf capitals and double chamfered arches. The chancel arch is pointed but with the
late Norman square abacus. The chancel itself is C13, originally with a C13 north
transept chapel and a C14 south one, but only the arches to these survive. The
piscina is C13, and so is the double sedilia though the hoodmoulds were renewed in the
C19. The font is Cll with interlocking arches. The pews were fitted in the C19, they
were brought from Hackthorn Church, they have fine carved poppy heads. Wall monument
1734. Church restored carefully by F C Penrose in 1864, and Tower restored 1901.
