(Previously listed as Church)
29.12.66 (Dedication not known)


Church. C13 tower, the rest rebuilt in 1740. Coursed squared ironstone rubble
with limestone dressings. West tower, with naved chancel in one. Tower is of
3 stages, but the upper 2 are very low, and it is generally small. Square headed
paved lights to west and to bell chamber. Plain corbel table and embattled parapet.
Nave and chancel form 3 bays, buttressed and embattled in an early English style,
with Y-traceried lights with curved head and hoodmould. North door in slightly
ogival arch. South doorway has stone porch roof between the butresses. Triple
lancet east window. Very simple interior : the single chamfered tower arch is
almost round arched and springs from semi-octagonal responds. C13 octagonal
font and piscina. Roof probably dates from 1960's restoration. Some late C19
stained glass : traditional saints figures in east window, Saint George and an
angel in preraphaelite style in tower window, C18 stalls. One Richard Green
was responsible for the rebuilding.
