The bell turret is boarded, with four gables and an octagonal leaded spirelet. Inside, there is a C14 chancel arch and squints (of uncertain date). The front is a C12 tub with arcading, one cylindrical stem and square base, with a later octagonal bowl at the top. There is a two-decker Jacobean pulpit, with panelled and moulded sides, and a sounding board of the C18. The medieval roof has exposed arch-braces (once hidden by a plaster barrel vault, as restored in the chancel), the former carved bosses, removed when the roof was restored in 1933, being exhibited in a glass case.
