Small parish church mainly of C13 but the C12 south doorways to the chancel and south aisle suggest an earlier church on the site. C13 nave and chancel, C14 west tower and broach spire. In 1870 the north aisle was rebuilt by G.G. Scott and the south aisle and much of the west tower were cased in limestone ashlar. Of coursed limestone rubble and pebblestone. C14. West tower of three stages and bell stage. Gargoyles to main cornice. Two cinquefoil openings in four centred head with moulded label and return stops to each wall of bell stage. Broach spire of Barnack ashlar with two tiers of gabled spire lights. Nave with C19 tiled roof and c.1870 clerestorey of Ketton stone. Each side has three windows of two ogee lights in square heads. The south aisle has larger similar windows to those of the clerestorey. The south doorway is late C11 or early C12 and probably reset. Rounded headed arch with roll moulding and small attached shafts with scallop capitals. The bases of the doorway have been renewed with Ketton stone. Early C13 chancel with plain tiled roof.

Restored C13 double piscina in south wall of south aisle. Two centred arch chamfered with trefoil cusping to each. Continuous moulded label with return stops. Trefoil cusped drain to each.
