side there is a sandstone sundial tablet. The bell openings are of two
trefoiled lights under a pointed head. The embattled parapet has corner
pinnacles. The west nave window is of five lights with Geometrical tracery.
The nave is of five bays to the north, separated by buttresses, and has
paired 2-light windows with Geometrical tracery. The north porch has a
parapet, and two windows to the north. The east window of the chancel is
of five lights with Geometrical tracery. On the south side there is a

To the right of the chapel are two bays of the south aisle which have 3-light
windows with Geometrical tracery. Under the right-hand window is a mid-C20
doorway with canopy. In the east wall of the chapel is a worn plaque dated
"1691". On the west side it is dated "1871". Between it and the south
porch is one bay. The gabled porch has a pointed arch moulded in two orders.
Interior: set into the wall at the base of the tower is a baluster shaft,
possibly late C11. The six-bay arcade has pointed arches chamfered in two
orders springing from piers with moulded capitals. The two western bays
of the nave were partitioned from the remainder in the mid-C20 to form a
coffee bar and gallery. The three western bays of the south aisle have an
inserted first floor. The roof is boarded and has scissor-braced trusses.
The pointed chancel arch is moulded and has corbelled shafts as responds.
The font, said to be C15, is octagonal with shields carved within quatrefoils.
The chancel is lined with sandstone and has a boarded barrel roof and mosaic
floor. The east window has three inner arches carried on shafts. Between
the chancel and south chapel is a two-bay arcade. The chapel roof has one
scissor-braced king-post truss. Windows contain some C19 glass by Powell.
