Description

The 12th century church was rebuilt by Pickering between 1846 and 1847. The rebuild included some original material. It has a four bay nave with a south porch in the second bay, and a two bay chancel. The chancel arch has chevron mouldings and is flanked by two segmental niches in the wall.

The church is now a college chapel.
