Flint rubble with freestone dressings. Plaintiled roofs with parapet gables; the nave has parapets. Mainly late C14 work: 4-stage tower with traceried belfry windows. Moulded west doorway has a hoodmould with grotesque corbels, and above is a window with dagger tracery. Several good C14 2-light side windows in nave and chancel, and simply moulded north and south doorways. A prominent north porch added c.1500 with good quality details. Completely covered in flushwork: chequerwork at the sides and in trefoil-headed panels at the front and to the buttresses. A pair of north buttresses with sunk traceried panels beneath buttressed and canopied image niches. Each contains a carved stool and fan-vaulted coving; and an identical niche is set above the doorway. The doorway has square flowers and grotesques and crowns in casement mouldings, and the hoodmould has lions beneath and a square label with shields and leaf carving. Large traceried porch side windows and moulded archbraced roof. Interior: wide C14 chancel arch. An unusual font; the octagonal bowl and stem of c.1500 with tracery and supporting angels is set upon the bowl of the previous mid C14 font bowl. This has been cut down, but the upper half of the sunk panels have traceried heads and various carved figures. Major remodelling of 1872 included rebuilding of nave and chancel roofs and refurnishing throughout. Arms of George III over south doorway.
