Church mostly dating to 1860, replacing an earlier building. West tower with small extension to the north; nave, south porch; east and west transepts and relatively narrow but tall chancel. Tower roof, belfry and gutter repairs were completed in summer 2018 with grant from the Listed Places of Worship Roof Repair Fund. Rainwater goods need repair and drainage around the church is poor.
