Summary Description

The church is built of rubble with leaded roof-coverings, except for the chancel which has a tiled roof. The plain battlemented west tower is of three stages. The belfry windows are of two lights with a polygonal shaft between, and a trefoil in plate tracery. A slight set-off above the windows of the bell chamber shows that the tower was slightly heightened when the embattled parapet was added in the 15th century. The nave clerestory, which also has an embattled parapet, was added at the same time.
