Greenstone squared rubble with ashlar dressings and some brick raising, green slate roofs with stone coped gables, crosses fleury and decorative tiled ridges. Nave with western bellcote, north aisle, chancel, south porch, vestry. A large central buttress divides the west end of the church, and supports the ashlar octagonal bellcote which has 4 shouldered openings, a nail headcornice and short steeple crowned with a weather vane. To either side of the buttress are single C19 2 light windows with quatrefoils over and hood moulds with foliate stops. Nave and aisles have been totally rebuilt externally in 1863 restoration. The north side of the north aisle has 3 two light windows with cusped heads to the lights. The chancel has medieval fabric, and has some brick patching and raising on the north side. The vestry has a western doorway and single eastern light. The chancel east window is C15 with 3 cusped lights, panel tracery above and human head labels. The south chancel window is C19, of 2 lights. The nave south wall has a large C19 3 light window with reticulated tracery and segmental head, and a single light with trefoil over. Beyond the porch is a single C19 lancet. The C19 gabled south porch has a steeply pointed outer doorway with half engaged shafts and annular capitals. The inner doorway is in a plainer pointed opening. Interior. The 3 bay north arcade of c1200 has double chamfered just pointed arches. The piers and responds have been rebuilt in C19, but it seems likely that the keeled responds have been recut whereas the concave quatrefoil piers with attached annular shafts look entirely C19. The double chamfered chancel arch also has recut keeled responds. Roofs and fittings are C19, including the font, altar rail and pulpit. Chancel screen reconstructed in C19 contains some C15 panels. Built into the east wall of the nave, to either side of the chancel arch are 2 fragments of an elaborately carved c1200 cross. On the north side the panel, which has nail head decoration depicts the crucifixion scene, the figure on the cross being flanked by 2 figures and the foot of Christ is nailed with one nail. Beneath is foliate decoration which is continued on the panel on the south side. On the floor below the northern panel is the cut down roughly hewn bowl of an early octagonal font. Monuments. In the chancel north wall is a domed brass plaque inscribed to Gulielmus Chapman, d.1722.
