Tower: two stages, string course above ridge of nave, angle buttresses to west, corbelled parapet, lancet west window, lancets on each face of second stage. Nave: lancet between chancel and south transept. Two single-light windows in north wall; the east one, probably C13 or C14 has a triangular head; the west, perhaps C12, has a segmental head. Chancel: C13 and C14 lancets, the east window is a pair of trefoil- headed lancets, probably late C14; blocked C13 priests' door with sundial incised on east jamb, between two lancets on south side. South transept: large C14 south window of two lights with trefoiled heads, above are two corbel heads beneath a stone ledge. North porch: perhaps C14 or C15, much restored, trusses comprising two sets of moulded arch braces support- ing two tie-beams, moulded to match at their junctions. Entrance from north through square-headed chamfered doorway, probably C14. (RCHM notes C12 south doorway with roll-moulded jambs and flat lintol in vestry inaccessible at time of re-survey, October 1984). Interior: the nave is separated from south transept by a C14 arcade consisting of one octagonal column supporting two 2-centred arches springing from ground level at north and south; C13 two-centred chamfered chancel arch and tower arch. West roofs are ceiled in the form of barrels (RCHM notes curved braces on wind-braces in nave); that of south transept has four C17 moulded brackets, one to each corner, which presently support nothing. Chancel: ceiled wagon roof, probably mid-C19; south-east window has semi- circle cut out of its cill to form a high shelf, probably mid-C19. Restored chancel screen, probably C15 or C16 has linenfold panels to bottom, open ogee heads and tracery to top of three bays to each side of entrance. C17 communion table with turned Doric column legs and carved top rails. Three piscinas all C14, two with trefoiled heads and ball-flower enrichments, foiled drains, one in splay of south-east window of the chancel, another in south-east corner of the nave; the third, without ball-flowers, is in the south wall of the south transept, adjacent in east wall, a large corbel with cavetto mouldings, perhaps C16. Early C17 oak hexagonal pulpit and reading desk with panelled sides. Font has C12 round bowl and mid-C19 stem and base. Small late C17 communion table to west of chancel screen has bobbin-baluster legs. (RCHM, Vol II, p 178).
