plate tracery, and a C13 doorway, with roll-moulded outer arch and detached
shafts with stiff-leaf capitals. South transept has a 2-light window with
Reticulated tracery. Flint-walled nave has segmental-arched windows with
Perpendicular tracery (one C19) and a south doorway with a moulded arch
sheltered by a C19 timber-framed open porch. Nave roof has 2 dormers with
elaborate C19 barge boards. 3-stage crenellated tower has walls of banded flint

Interior: east window has detached jamb shafts, with stiff-leaf capitals, from
an earlier window, and there are remains of similar arcading in the south wall.
Nave and chancel have 7-canted coupled-rafter roofs, probably C14, and the
plastered tympanum, above the C19 chancel screen, is painted on the east with
C17 Prince of Wales feathers and the monogram "CP". Fittings include a small
octagonal C17 pulpit and a C17 parish chest. The Romanesque lead font has
arcaded sides and stands on a C14 stone base with traceried panels; the
strapwork cover is probably C17. Glass includes medieval fragments in the
chancel north window, 2 late-C19 stained-glass windows, and 3 early C19 windows
by A.J. Davies.
