central tower with triple arcade to the bell stage and circular openings above,
capped by a broach spire. Slate roof, leaded to tower and nave. Inside, the C13
moulded arches have circular columns between chancel and chapel and octagonal
columns in the nave, both with moulded caps and bases. The reveals of Norman
windows remain in the east and west sides of the south transept. Traces of
medieval painting. The pulpit (1706) came in 1906 from the Church of the Holy

in the south chapel) of the C18 and early C19. The font bowl from Westbury
Chapel is in the south aisle. The church is famous for its Tournai font.
