Church dating from C12, C13, C15 and rebuilt in 1838. Rubble stone, with course squared stone and ashlar tower. Comprising nave, chancel, west tower and south porch. The tower is mainly of C15 construction. There are several open joints to the exterior and some masonry repairs are needed. Guttering and downpipes are in need of refurbishment and improvements to below ground drainage are needed. The interior shows signs of damp. The church is no longer used for worship. Repairs to the base of the tower and parapet where undertaken in 2013. Discussions as to the building's future are on-going.
