1838, enlarged 1875. Originally a plain wide nave with shallow transepts and chancel
and with a western tower, extended eastwards by the attachment of a long chancel, with
a south aisle and north vestry. Slate roofing. The older part has walling of square
knapped flints with stone dressings; lancets to the nave and coupled windows (with
hood-moulds) to tile transepts, a western tower of 3 stages with corner buttresses and
western entrance door; inside, the plain interior has 'hammer-beam' trusses with
cusp-headed rails. The later work is of a rich Perpendicular style, with stepped
buttresses, traceried windows, rough flint walling with stone dressings; the interior
has a chancel screen of open traceried timber work above a stone dado wall, steps,
stalls, communion rail, sedilia, and brass eagle lectern.
