A comparatively small east end, comprising a chancel (a rebuild of 1464 with a fine exposed timber roof within), a south chapel and vestry (of C14), and a larger north (War Memorial) chapel of 1920. The larger scale nave and aisles (1520) have five bays, enclosing the tower at the west end, and there is a 2-storeyed south porch of 1539. The east end has steeply pitched red tile roofing, flint walls with stone dressings (chequer-board pattern for the north chapel) for windows, bands, buttresses. The main body of the church is in stone ashlar, the nave having a flat roof (lead) behind a crenellated parapet the windows of three lights in the clerestory and four lights in the aisles; there are cill bands, a high moulded plinth, and plain parapets to the aisles. The Tower is of four stages, with a crenellated parapet, octagonal corner buttresses capped by pinnacles of 1879, with a large west window. Within there are three hatchments with the Royal Coat of Arms (of Elizabeth, James I, and William III), a font of 1885, and some windows at the east end containing small areas of C16 glass, from the Holy Ghost Chapel.
