Almost complete two-cell Saxon church, with restoration vestry and south porch.
Flint walls with some plaster covering, stone dressings; long and short quoins and
a series of thin pilasters (lesesnes) linking plinth and eaves bands. The east end
is brickwork and the top of the west gable has diaper brick and flint patterning
(of 1905): vestry and south porch have flint walls with stone dressings of plain
style. Tile roof, with very small western bell turret. Lancet, east end
'Perpendicular' window. Inside there is the original Saxon chancel arch, a Norman
font, a C13 stone seat in the chancel, and a series of (now obscure) C13 wall
paintings on the theme of the story of St Swithun. The roof and pulpit are
Jacobean, and there is a Victorian west gallery. The communion rail is C18, with
slatted balusters. There are two floor monuments, of 1788 and 1814, and
Prescription panels on the west wall.
