The west wall has a C19 lancet window between two buttresses, and a gabled bellcote with two bells. The north wall of the nave is of two bays and has windows with chamfered surrounds and round heads, probably C18. The south wall has a similar window to the east of the porch and a C19 trefoiled window to the west. The open gabled porch is probably C17 and has a collar-rafter roof. The doorway has a chamfered surround with straight-sided pointed head. In the east wall of the nave there is a chamfered lancet. The chancel is early C14. On the north side there is a lancet window and a doorway with C19 pointed head. The south wall has two windows: a trefoiled ogee light and a lancet. The east window is of three lights with intersecting tracery. Interior: nave and chancel have scissor-braced rafter roofs. The chancel arch is chamfered in two orders, the inner order dying into the responds. High up in the wall to the south of the arch is a C13 window now opening into the chancel. In the south wall of the chancel is a trefoiled piscina. The sandstone font, a round bowl with moulded stem, is probably C13. The chancel windows con- tain late C19 glass. (RCHM, p 89).
