Parish Church. Largely as rebuilt in 1717, but with C16 tower, and chancel added in 1788. Coursed and squared rubble to tower, the rest of brick on stone plinth, with tiled roofs. West tower, nave and chancel. West tower of two stages with very low door with chamfered jambs and flat-arched hoodmould. Three-light Perpendicular window over, and 3-light opening to bellchamber above. Angle buttresses and embattled parapet. Nave of six bays, the outer bays to east and west in south elevation with doorways with moulded architraves, and pediment to east. Eastern doorway also in north. Windows are round-arched with stone springers and keys, and have Y-tracery. Smaller windows with similar detailing over doorways. Moulded eaves band, and stone plinth which is possibly a survivor from the C16 church. Chancel projects only slightly from line of nave, and has apsidal east end containing Palladian window with moulded cornice and brackets to sill.
