Coursed cobbles with freestone dressings, brick porch. 2-stage west tower, 3-bay nave with south aisle and south porch, 2-bay chancel (probably reduced in length in C19).

South aisle and south chancel chapel: buttresses with offsets, and 3-light windows with Perpendicular tracery under elliptical arches. Round- headed south door with continuous roll and hollow chamfers. South porch: shallow pointed arch on grotesque corbels under hood-mould. 3 blocked lancets to west elevation, Lombard frieze in moulded brick beneath south gable. Chancel: chamfered plinth. Square-headed priests' door with continuous chamfer. C19 east window of 3 lights with tracery in Perpendicular style under hood-mould. Coped gable. Interior: pointed double-chamfered tower arch with moulded imposts on responds with attached columns. South arcade of 3 pointed double-chamfered arches on piers with continuous but displaced mouldings. Late mediaeval screen with open Perpendicular tracery and brattished top rail surmounted by C19 rood and accompanying figures. Double-chamfered pointed arch on grotesque corbels to chancel south chapel. Mid C13 octagonal font with 2 trefoil-headed blank openings to each side. Funeral hatchments to nave north wall and to south aisle south wall. South porch contains re-set mediaeval cross head with Christ displaying stigmata. C19 chancel roof rests on a series of fine moulded plaster corbels, probably mediaeval, of which only 4 of the original 8 now survive.
