Church. 1842. By SC Fripp. Squared Lias rubble with limestone ashlar dressings and a slate roof. Apsidal chancel, crossing tower and aisled nave. Norman Revival style. Small, round-arched windows include a group of 3 in the E end above a torus string and beneath a similar hoodmoulding, and a weathered ovolo corbel table. Short, square chancel tower with a pyramidal roof and a round ashlar staircase tower at the NE corner with a beehive roof and a round-arched door at the bottom. Clocks on N and S sides of tower, over a blind arcade on the S side. The N aisle of 3 bays separated by pilasters, beneath a weathered corbel table and parapet. W porch has a coped gable end with 3-window range, and E-facing door with a semicircular arch, round responds with cushion capitals in a gabled entrance, and 2-leaf door with strap hinges. SE porch below the tower has a door with a shouldered lintel and single light; S elevation as the N. The W end is 5 bays, 1:3:1 separated by buttresses, with higher middle lights with beakhead stops to the hoods, and a small rose window flanked by blind single lights under the apex. Celtic cross finial. INTERIOR: stone Norman-style reredos and small piscina in the apse, which is separated from the single-bay chancel by a square section arch. Similar chancel arch, on carved Romanesque corbels; organ loft to the N. 5-bay nave arcade of round piers with semicircular pilaster strips on the sides, cushion capitals and semicircular arches, springing from a carved corbel at the chancel end and terminating in a respond in the W wall. Braced queen-post nave roof, and plain aisle trusses resting on the arcade pilaster strips. Fittings include a stone Norman-style font. A fine example of the Norman Revival of the 1840s, the style being carried through to a good interior.
