All windows have recessed chamfered surrounds, and dark brick arches with dark impost string. Large 6-foil west window. Head-stopped dripmoulds to doors. Buttresses, gabled to chancel.

Interior painted brick, with painted ashlar dressings; arch-braced roof on stone corbels; waggon roof in chancel.
