C14, with a late C19 restoration by Hodgson Fowler. Ironstone,
limestone, slate roof, brick blocking. Chancel only with C19

roofed porch built by Hodgson Fowler late in the C19, and
incorporating the C13 west door. This doorway consists of a
pointed arch with roll moulding, a zone of dogtooth and a chamfer,
slightly moulded imposts and single engaged shafts on the reveals
with a further zone of dogtooth behind. Hood mould is hacked
back flush. Imposts continue as string courses to either side.
The porch is built against the blocking of the C13 chancel arch,
visible to either side and having a double chamfer. To either
side of the arch, the responds of the C13 nave arcades remain.
There are engaged octagonal piers with hollow moulded capitals,
a zone of hobnail decoration and hollow moulded abaci. On the
north side of the chancel arch, the respond is visible, which is
of the curling tail form, ornamented with a hobnailed octagonal
capital. The north wall of the nave has a chamfered plinth, as
do the other walls of the church. The east wall of the chancel
contains a late C14 3 light window, the mullions and upper parts
of which are a C19 restoration. The lights have cusped ogee
heads and are contained in a 3 centred single chamfered arch with
moulded hood mould. On the south side of the chancel is a
priest's door, now blocked in brick, with chamfered reveals and a
flat ogee head. Immediately above is a probably contemporary
early C14 2 light window, the lights having cusped ogee trefoil
heads with quatrefoil over contained within a pointed single
chamfered arch with a chamfered hood mould and human head label
stops. To the east is a single similar window. Inside; the
shape of the chancel arch is visible in the east wall, and to
either side of the C19 west door are recesses, the heads of which
are made from reused sections of C13 roll mouldings. In the
south wall is a sedilia with a fine deeply cusped ogee head. In
the sanctuary is a piscina with a cusped ogee head and a slightly
projecting rounded fluted basin. Sanctuary floor has Minton
tiles. C19 roof has contemporary painting. Font is C15 and
imported from the church at Low Toynton (Lincs.). Octagonal in
shape with in arcades round the stem figures of saints. The
bowl also octagonal, and in the square side panels are angels, a
Tudor rose, other flowers and pairs of figures. In the reveal
of the south priest's door is a loose C13 base, octagonal, with
nail head decoration, doubtless from the demolished nave arcade.
