heads with hoodmoulds and a blocked C13 doorway with pointed head
and hoodmould. North side has similar C15 window and one 1854
window of 2 round-headed lights in original C15 opening. Similar
C19 window to chancel north side; south side has a single light
window. East window of 3 lights with C19 plate tracery under
pointed head. Diagonal buttresses with set-offs to nave and
chancel. Gabled north porch with round-headed entrance, 4-centred

turret on Grittleton House, dismantled and resited on church in
1854: Romanesque style with 2-arched openings to each side and
pyramidal roof with weathervane.
Interior. Open rafter roofs to nave and chancel. C19 pointed
arch to chancel. Fittings. Nave has early C13 font:
cylindrical pillar with trumpet capital frieze below circular bowl.

1830 to William Walker on west wall.
