16.3.66

II* Church; medieval core, largely rebuilt 1878 by William Smith of London. Nave, chancel, south aisle and organ chamber; the vestry and south porch added C20. Flint rubble with limestone dressings. Plaintiled roofs; an open timber-framed bell-turret with shingled broach spire at west end. Much of the north nave wall has coursed flintwork of C12 type. A few C14 features survive, heavily restored: south doorway and west aisle window, north chancel doorway and adjacent niche. North doorway and adjacent reset niche of C15; also the restored east window. North nave and chancel doors with moulded planks, C15 or C16; south porch door similar, reset from south nave doorway. Most other features are of 1878, including windows and nave arcade in the C14 manner. Fine C15 limestone font, with sunk panels on bowl, carved with emblems of evangelists; on the stem are sculptured figures of lions. Included as Grade II* because of the early nave walling and the exceptionally fine font.
