Summary Description

The church is built of flint with some Roman tiles in the north wall of the nave: the upper parts are in places repaired with blue bricks. The dressings are of clunch and other soft stones. The tower is roofed with lead and the chancel is tiled. The west tower is typical of the Hertfordshire fifteenth- century style, of stout construction and heavy proportions which contrast with the slender "Hertfordshire spike" which rises within the parapet.
