South side: 6 bays articulated 1:2:2:1 by end and intermediate offset buttresses. Gabled vestry projects from the sixth bay. Pointed panelled door in second bay to west. Remaining bays contain full-height lancets. Vestry gable end incorporates reused window of 2 pointed lights with chamfered Y tracery and a cinquefoil over, much decayed. Both returns contain single lancets with pointed bordered lights. Church north side repeats the south without the vestry. A stone over the door has a recessed centre panel encompassing the words "Omnia Vanitas" in low relief. The east end has 3 stepped lancets. All openings are splayed and all windows have diamond lattice glazing. Coped gables with plain kneelers. Gable crosses to vestry and east end. Interior: pews of 1907 by Thompson of Kilburn. Carved oak lectern from Holland, presented to the church in the late C19, by George Leeman. Near the sanctuary and slightly to the north, is a graveslab on which traces of a foliated cross are faintly visible. The Bishop's Chair in the sanctuary is constructed of ancient stones from the Priory. Against the exterior of the east wall of the Church is a stone coffin, without cover, shaped and hollowed out to form a neck and head rest. It was found in the churchyard in 1886 by the Sexton.
