under hoodmould and old brick lateral stack on north. Low-pitched roof hidden
by low parapet with chamfered coping.
Plain, plastered interior with all furnishings removed. Nave: Two circular
stone fonts lying on side; small roughly-arched opening, possibly stoup, in
north wall; box-pews reused as dado; renewed roof trusses. Late C12
semicircular chancel arch of 2 chamfered orders, under hoodmould to nave,
