16. 3. 66

II* Church, medieval, restored 1884. Nave, chancel, south-west tower/porch. Flint rubble (the nave partly plastered), limestone dressings. Plaintiled roofs with parapet gables; the tower has a pyramid plaintiled roof with open eaves. Chancel of mid C13: south doorway hoodmoulded with corbel faces, and single-light north and south windows. Early C14 alterations: 3-light windows with intersecting tracery in north and south walls, Y-tracery 2-light windows in nave side walls. C14 nave doorway, roll-and-fillet moulded with square label, original oak door with moulded ribs; inside is a stoup. A C14 trefoiled piscina, with adjacent dropped-cill sedilia cut into earlier south chancel window. Another piscina for south nave side-altar. Plain C14 south doorway, blocked by C17/C18 brickwork. Tower, with porch formed within ground floor, added C15; simple doorway. The upper stage was removed, perhaps c.1700. Nave roof rebuilt C17, with moulded wall-pieces, otherwise plain (an archdeacon's report of 1602 describes both nave and chancel as "exceeding ruinous"). Chancel arch of moulded stucco with flanking red brick walling; Gothick in form perhaps of late C17 or early C18. Scissor-braced chancel roof of 1884 with sections of moulded cornice perhaps of C14, reused. Octagonal C15 limestone font, traceried, with restored C17 oak cover. 3 painted panels on nave walls, late C18, with Credence, Lord's prayer and Ten Commandments.
