I Church. Mid C12 with C14 and C15 alterations and additions. Sandstone rubble with tile roof. Comprises a west tower, nave, lower chancel, north vestry, and north porch.

The C15 tower has diagonal buttresses, and a pyramidal roof set back behind a parapet. The bell openings are of two trefoiled lights under a pointed head; the south one is blocked. The west window is of two cinquefoiled lights with tracery. The north wall of the nave has a window of two trefoiled lights under a pointed head with quatrefoil to the west of the porch. The doorway, under an open timber-framed porch, has a round arch with chevron moulding and angle shafts with scalloped capitals. The south wall of the nave is of two bays and has windows of two trefoiled ogee lights under a pointed head. The western window is a C19 copy. Between the windows is a doorway with plain round arch. The vestry adjoins the north wall of the chancel, under a lean-to roof. The east window is of two trefoiled ogee lights, the tracery renewed in the C19. The south wall of the chancel has a window of two trefoiled lights and flat head, also renewed in the C19.

INTERIOR: the nave roof is plastered and has three moulded tie beams. The pointed tower arch is chamfered in two orders and has moulded imposts. The chancel arch is pointed and is plain except for some stones with C12 decoration, suggesting that it has been reconstructed. The jambs of the arch have angle shafts on the west side with scalloped capitals. Above and to the left of the chancel arch, the nave wall has an exposed fragment of wall painting. The piscina has a triangular head. The C17 communion rails have turned balusters and a carved rail. The pews incorporate linenfold panels. The font is plain and circular, on a circular base. Attached to the nave walls are boards painted with the Creed and the Lord's Prayer. Below the tower are tile Ten Commandments with the names of the churchwardens in 1851.
