Much of the church is of Norman origin, in particular the west tower, which Pevsner reckons is 27 feet square at its base - wider than the nave.

Nonetheless, the tower's most distinctive feature - its double pitched roof with brick-built gables - is without doubt a much later addition. Pevsner guessed it might date from the 17th century (see the Buckinghamshire volume of 'The Buildings of England') while the Listing Text (compiled in 1955) suggests an 18th or early 19th century date.
