Parish church. Early to mid-C15 west tower; the body of the church almost entirely rebuilt by Rev. H T Ellacombe in 1854-5, and this in turn was reduced to ruins by an incendiary bomb in 1940; the post-war rebuilding (which was not a copy of Ellacombe's work) was completed in 1952. Coursed rubble Heavitree stone. Slate roof. West tower, nave, north aisle, south porch, chancel, south-east vestry. West tower: 2 stages, with renewed battlementing.

Set-back buttresses to north and south sides only, 3 set-offs. 2-light pointed belfry openings to all sides; single-light square-headed ringing chamber window to south; renewed 3-light west window; west doorway with C15 composite moulded surrounds and bases.
