Parish church, 1874-77 by R.M. Phipson, on the site of the previous medieval

style. Flint rubble; freestone dressings with much carved ornament.
Plaintiled roofs with parapet gables. Nave, chancel, west tower, south porch,
north transeptal chapel with vestry and organ chamber attached. The tower is
a very prominent feature; at the base is a richly moulded west doorway and
window; the belfry stage is octagonal with flying buttresses; a tall spire
with bands of pink and buff linestone. Good carved figures on the porch at
bases of gables and elsewhere on exterior. Arch-braced collar-beam roof with
kingposts. Complete original internal fittings. Glass by Clayton and Bell.
A number of good monuments have been transferred from the previous church,
most now in the chapel. Wall monument to Charlton Wollaston, d.1729, with a
put to unrolling a scroll. Other monuments to members of the Wollaston family,
1720, 1758, 1769, 1797. A large monument to Roger Pettiward, d.1833, by Sir
R. Westmacott with a large relief of the Good Samaritan. Five C17 and C18
