Summary Description

The chunky flint-faced tower, its solid proportions typical of other towers of the area, dominates the church and churchyard. It is in two stages with diagonal buttresses that terminate just below the cill level of the belfry openings. At the south east corner is a polygonal stair-turret, its plain parapet rising above the battlements. The lower stage of the tower contains a square-headed west doorway with quatrefoils in the spandrels and crumbling angel label stops.
