Western tower, nave and chancel. 3 stage tower, in roughly coursed ironstone rubble, with plinth, 2 plain string courses, and C15 plain embattled parapet. There are corner buttresses to the 1st stage only. All faces have C13 paired belfry lights with mid wall shafts with projecting carved heads on central impost, and pointed arches. There are 2 weathered corner shutes below the parapet. The west end has a single C13 lancet to the first stage; heavily restored. The nave is in squared ironstone and limestone rubble with a slate roof. The north side has a short 1790 segmental headed window at high level, to light a former gallery, and 2 semi-circular headed tall 1790 windows. The chancel is in ironstone coursed rubble with lead roof and the north side has a C14 2 light window with Y tracery. The East end has a C14 3 light window with Y tracery. The south side of the chancel has one stepped buttress and a 3 light C20 window in C17 style and a similar 2 light window. Built into the wall is an early C13 decorated grave slab with circular cross motif. The fenestration of the south side of the nave is as the north side except that the windows have plain surrounds with carved heads at impost level. Part of a further C13 grave slab is built into the nave wall. The south door has a plain stone surround and an inserted C19 segmental head. Interior: The nave has plain plastered walls with a beaded and plaited plaster moulding which runs above the wainscotting and up around the window. The wainscotting is both panelled and boarded. The plaster ceiling has ornamenal rosettes at the lighting points. The C13 tower arch has double chamfers and octagonal responds. There is no chancel arch but flat reeded strips mark the chancel which is also set at a slight angle to the nave. The chancel roof is a C15 king post roof with one corbel head remaining from an earlier roof. At the east end is a trefoil headed piscina and on the north side a C13 double piscina with octagonal shaft and one quatrefoil stoup and one circular stoup. Monuments: In the chancel are 2 tomb chests to John and Margaet Wildbore. On the north side, in front of the piscina, is an effigy of a lady, late C14, in sunken relief with her head on a cushion with 2 angels either side all under an ogee arch. At her feet is a small dog. The tomb base is decorated with shields and heraldic emblems and inscribed in Latin around the top. On the south side is a late C14 knight, in high relief, in perfect condition, in full armour, and with a rebus of a wild boar on his middle. The tomb chest is of similar design to the lady's and the other side of the chest has been set up against the south wall so that the full inscription can be seen. The font is C18, a plain circular bowl on a bulbous pedestal. At the west end of the nave is a Georgian Royal Coat of Arms.
