Summary Description

A small compact building, the churchyard sloping gently east to the village. The walls are of flint and stone flushwork, as is so common in this district, and the lichened stone provides variety of tone and texture and takes the hardness off the flints. The roof coverings are tiled, that of the tower being in the form of a low pyramid. The tower also serves as the entrance porch and is keyed into the nave, so that the west gable of the latter subtly cuts across the west wall of the tower.
