Sandstone rubble, coursed sandstone and sandstone dressings, tiled roof. Nave, west tower, chancel and north porch. West tower has battered base and three stages with projecting parapet; west side has one central loop to bottom and first stages; top stage has a single ogeed opening to each face.

The re-built chancel has a single-light ogeed window with a square head on the south wall; the east window, set between buttresses with off-sets is of two trefoiled lights under a 2-centred head. North porch is timber- framed with a quatrefoiled gable, the front posts have pyramidal chamfer- stops to their bases and carry angle struts rising to an ogee under the tie- beam; scissor truss roof; three-bay panels to each side with trefoil-headed openings above former from cusped angle struts. North doorway has 2-centred head with a label. Interior: chamfered 2-centred opening between tower and nave; roof of nave has C16 (?) braced collar beam trusses, mainly intact, except for the three to the extreme east which are restored and one cambered and chamfered tie-beam. Chancel arch is 2-centred and chamfered with head stops to label. Chancel has wagon roof, late C19 trefoiled and ogee-headed piscina with part octagonal drain; opposite on the north wall is a trefoiled and ogeed niche under a gabled label with a finial at the apex. Font, perhaps C13, has plain cyclindrical bowl and stem on a late C19 base. The south- west nave window has a C13 tomb slab with circles and fleur-de-lis motifs re-used as a lintel. Tower carries three bells, the two eastern ones apparently medieval with Lombardic lettering; the western one probably C17.
