2. Built of flint with stone dressings and tiled roof. Cruciform building with a central tower, a north porch and a chapel to the west of the north transept and to the north of the nave. The building is largely late C12 except for the south transept which is Cl3 and has an east gabled projection as at Ickham and the north porch which is C19, but the base of the tower possibly contains some earlier Norman work and later C14 windows have been inserted in the nave and the chapel to the north of it. The whole building was restored in 1869-70 by William White. The nave retains its original stone wall benches. The church also contains a piece of C15 painted woodwork which once formed part of the reredos of Canterbury Cathedral and was rescued from destruction in the C17. Two piscinas and aumbry. Norman font. Early C16 base of rood screen. The churchyard contains a chest tomb, some oval bodystones, and C18 skull and cherub motif headstones.
