Red brick in Flemish bond with ashlar dressings, brick coped plain tiled roofs and copper steeple. Western tower, nave, chancel. A stone plinth with chamfered top runs round the whole church. The 3 stage tower has 2 brick bands, a moulded stone cornice and re-used small medieval corner pinnacles. It is surmounted by a short narrow copper clad spine with weather vane. The western doorway is a plain semi-circular headed opening with ashlar key and impost blocks and contains double C18 gates. To belfry stage are plain semi-circular headed louvred openings. The nave and chancel have cyma moulded stone cornices. On the north side the plinth is of brick with chamfered stone top. To both side walls of nave are 2 semi- circular headed windows with ashlar key and impost blocks, double cross mullioned timber lights with leaded panes. The chancel east window is also semi-circular, containing stained glass, and flanked by 2 recessed panels, a small square one over a tall rectangular one.

The nave has boarded panelling terminating in a moulded cornice at sill height. Fittings. The C18 octagonal pulpit and vicar's pew are fully panelled, and came from Skelton Church, West Yorkshire. The church originally had box pews with the pulpit set midway on the south wall. It was moved to its new position when the church was reseated c.1914. At the west end is a vestry enclosure, presumably made up of panels from the old box pews. A statue bracket on the chancel arch is an ornate console bracket from Gautby Hall door surround. The C15 octagonal font with quatrefoil side panels, came from Laughton, near Gainsborough. In the nave is a small brass chandelier, bracketed out from the gallery. Monuments.

The tombs were moved from St. Mary Woolnoth Church, London by Sir Robert Vyner when the church was built in 1756.
