Three-stage tower, incorporating porch, has angle-pilasters, narrow two centred-arched north doorway with roll-moulded head and short set-in shafts which have stiff-leaf capitals, a lancet to the second stage, two-centred-arched belfry windows each of two cusped louvered lights, with shafts like those of the doorway, corbel table, and broach spire, with lucarnes on slender shafts.
