- II*

Parish church. C12, C14 and C15, extensively restored in 1866. Nave,
chancel, west tower and south porch. In random flint, with traces of old
render; freestone dressings, slate roofs. Stepped buttresses to nave and
chancel. One Norman slit window with deep inner splay on south side of nave;
the remainder 2- and 3-light, in various styles, one with flowing tracery,
another with a flat Tudor hood-mould. All have been repaired, but not
replaced, and are filled with diamond-leaded clear glass, some old. A 3-light
C14 east window with panel tracery. South porch, basically C14, but heavily
Victorianised. Small unbuttressed west tower in 3 stages, wit:h a string
course between the 2nd and 3rd stages and a simple crenellated top. A Norman
slit window on the west side of the 2nd stage and Y-tracery windows to each
face of the top stage. Interior almost entirely of 1866: arch-braced roofs in
traditional style, benches, pulpit and lectern, and all the chancel fittings,
of that date. Square font in Norman style; double piscina in chancel in Early
English style, perhaps a copy of what was there before. Plain pointed chancel
arch and tower arch, rendered. A mid-C18 black ledger slab on the chancel
