The church is on the site of an earlier church, with a late 12th century south porch in a 14th century nave. The porch is gabled and has a semicircular arch with four orders. The outer order has scrolled zig zags, and the inner three have carved figures and animals and grotesque masks. The capitals have biblical and mythological figures and scenes, and a continuous band above the capitals with relief foliage. The church was made redundant in 1974, and has since been used as a warehouse for the Theatre Royal and as the National Centre for Early Music.
