N transept gable has a hexafoil light in the top and lancets either side of an open timber gabled porch on a dwarf wall with arched braces, to a moulded 2-centre arched doorway with double cross-boarded door; 3-bay nave has 2-light plate tracery windows with quatrefoils, separated by buttresses. Coped W gable has a cross finial, a gabled stone porch with moulded 2-centre arched doorway and cross-boarded double doors, and lancets either side and above. S side as the N, with no transept porch.
