A church with west tower, late 14th C steeple, 13th C nave and aisles. The chancel was altered in 13th C.
The present church is built of sandstone with limestone dressings and shows signs of an earlier 12th century building. The font is Norman. The present south door is 10ft high and the south porch rebuilt in 1872 and south aisle restored 1895. The north aisle has 3 pillars with Norman nailhead decorations and 3 early English arches. The nave clearly shows the clerestory was added later than the older part of the church, probably 1200-1300. The vestry was built as the original organ chamber in 1880.
The chancel has an alabaster floor slab to John Spethyn, 1460.
