C16 north aisle partly plastered of 5 structural bays defined by stepped buttresses, 4 centred arched door near west end with moulded reveals, hood mould and label stops. Further east are four 3 light windows with 4 centred arched heads with hood moulds and label stops. Nave clerestorey has 6 paired lights with trefoil heads in possibly earlier round headed openings; later plain parapet. Chancel north wall has C19 tall 2 light window which cuts an earlier blocked window to the east. East wall rebuilt 1820 with 2 light Y tracery window and ashlar quoins. South wall has late C13 2 light pointed window with quatrefoil single chamfer reveal and hood mould. Also a priest's door with triangular head, heavily restored, with hood mould and label stops. Quoin is dated 1831. Blocked window and door at west end of chancel. South wall of nave of several phases, the 2 C12 pilasters are apparently added. At east end is a single late C13 3 light Y tracery window with hood mould. Further west at a high level are five 3 light C16 windows with 4 centred arches and concave reveals. The easternmost of these windows cuts an earlier blocked window beneath. Immediately east of the porch is a second blocked opening with a 4 centred arched head,visible on the inside.

The easternmost pair of arches are separated by a section of blank wall and the easternmost arch is lower than the rest, probably because it opened into a transept.
