The lower third of the tower is round, with a lancet west window; the upper part is octagonal, with red brick angles and brick lancet belfry openings to each face. Crenellated parapet.

Simple double-chamfered south doorway; north doorway bricked-up. Late C13 chancel, re-faced in mid C19. Original lancet and Y-traceried windows to north and south, and a 4-light east window in matching style, apparently renewed mid C19. Interior. No chancel arch. Coupled rafter roof to nave, many of the trusses probably medieval. Mid C19 boarded ceiling to chancel. In the sanctuary a trefoil-arched piscina and drop-sill sedilia. Rood loft stair in south wall of nave.
