Chancel, nave and south west porch. The west end of the building was part
of a late C15 two storeyed house. Red brick. Square-headed windows in west
wall with obtusely pointed lights and dripstone over that on first floor,
which lights the gallery. Hexagonal buttress at north west angle. The
south west porch was originally of two storeys. The remainder of the build-
ing was erected by Lewis Way of Stansted House in 1812-16 in rudimentary
Gothic style. Also red brick and some flints. Slate roof. Churchwarden
Gothic windows. Lewis Way was much concerned with conversion of the Jews
and the stained glass windows contain Jewish emblems. John Keats, while
waiting to embark on his last journey to Italy in 1819, attended the conse-
cration ceremony and describes these windows in his poem 'The Eve of St
Agnes', which was written at this time. The church was restored by H S
Goodhart-Rendel for Lord Bessborough in 1926 and again after bomb damage
in 1947.
