C12, C15, and mid C19. Norman church of nave, chancel and western tower (of same width as the nave), with an added north aisle together with a small vestry on the north-east corner (restoration of 1850 by Woodyer ). The chancel has on each side 2 deeply-splayed windows with zig-zag ornament surrounds; the nave windows have plate tracery above coupled cusped lights on the south and small lights to the aisles (1850). The nave arcade has pointed arches resting on 2 massive octagonal piers with simply-decorated caps. The main feature comprises 3 exceptionally decorated Norman arches: the narrow chancel arch has a series of decorative motifs, including zig-zags, and rests on attached columns: the tower arch has mouldings and a plainer treatment of attached columns: the south doorway is very ornate, with zig-zag stages and acanthus motifs, again resting on attached columns. A small north door has been re-used in the later aisle. The south porch is C15. Furniture includes a Norman font, a Jacobean pulpit, C18 altar rails, and several wall monuments. Externally, there is a red tile roof, flint walling with stone quoins, a cement finish to the lower part of the massive tower, which is surmounted by a restoration rubble stone bell stage having round-arched coupled openings and a pyramid roof.
