Built of rubble with Cotswold stone roofs. Two-bay chancel, 3-bay nave with low north aisle, 3 stage west tower with plain parapet. Gabled south porch and south transept; vestry to north-east (1857-9). Two lower stages of tower and the side windows of chancel are circa 1200 lancets, latter in wide reveals, nave and north transept probably of the same period but with C14 windows of ogee pattern, a north door of that period in the aisle and a late C14 stepped 3-light lancet with cusped heads and nave (restored). Reticulated east window (possibly by Street). Paired C15 lancets to upper stages of tower and crenellation. Square-headed 2-light windows with stilted-arch lights to east and south walls of south transept. The south porch has Norman impost capitals and a chamfered archway with pyramidal steps; inner arch of early C13. Wooden priest's door with shouldered lintel. Interior: 4-bay late C12 arcade, one capital with scallops, 2 square piers, labels with pyramidal stops. Chancel arch and arch to south chapel double chamfered and with moulded caps - probably early C13. The best feature is the triple sedilia with foiled head arcade to front part (also to be seen at Shipton and at Idbury - latter so similar as to suggest the same masons). C15 pillar piscina. C17 communion table (north aisle). Font octagonal C15 chalice type. Furnishings, and nave and chancel roofs by Street. A few low late mediaeval pews survive.
