rubble with stone dressings, all plastered except for the tower and porch.
Continuous thatched roof. C15 square unbuttressed tower with original 2-light

parapet with 2 tiers of flushwork panels and pierced obelisk pinnacles. Part
of the nave is C15 but the east end and the chancel are all of 1883-4.
Various small windows, largely of late C19. Crowstepped brick porch, probably
late C16 but much restored. Against the south chancel wall is a fine brick
aedicule, originally stuccoed, with pilasters and pediment: within is a semi-
circular headed niche containing a pedimented inscription to Nicholas Garneys
(1628) and Anne his wife, with a brass below; in the head of the arch is a
mermaid, the Garneys family crest. Attached to the north wall of the chancel,
in the angle with the organ chamber, is a monument to Caroline Murat, grand-
daughter of Napoleon's sister, erected 1902. Interior. C15 carved octagonal
font, the bowl panels depicting flowers, lions and angels bearing shields;
some traces of original colouring. Early C17 carved pulpit with backboard
(altered) and a tester supported by carved brackets; late C19 stone base.
Early C17 screen with a panelled dado and turned balusters and obelisks above.
Set of 28 nave benches, probably C17, with carved straight-topped ends. There
are various panels of C17 woodwork with painted inscriptions, said to be the
work of the Rev. Robert Shelford (d.1639).
