Built in Cotswold stone, with ashlar tower; Cotswold stone roof. Plan: west
tower, 5 bay nave with shorter north aisle and short south porch dated 1878; 2
bay chancel with C19 vestry to NE. Three stage tower with diagonal buttresses to
1st two and corner piers to upper stage; crenellated parapet with corner pin-
nacles; corner gargoyles and curved head stops to Perp belfry window labels; 2
painted sundials at SW corner, one dated 1748, the other inscribed 'Lux Umbra
Dei'. On south side square head windows of 3 Tudor arch lights, one to west of
Tudor-arch priest's door, blocked with reused probably earlier material. East
window restored in 1878 in Perpendicular style. North aisle of 2 wide bays:
Tudor arch west window with crude headstops and simple 3-light glazing; east win-
dow on north wall a good example of provincial flat-headed Perp tracery with cus-
ping and sub-lights and with diagonal stops to label. The Church is entered by a
tall Tudor arch south doorway. The interior is stripped; the main feature is
the wide span of the 2 bay north arcade with a hollow-chamfere pier. No chancel
arch; arch-braced 7 bay roof, possibly C17, the north aisle roof C19; tall
moulded tower arch, with C19 octagonal font in Perpendicular style below it.
C15 or early C16 pulpit, octagonal with tracery resembling east window on north
side of aisle. Cross on west wall of nave believed to be Anglo-Saxon. The floor
tiling (1899) is especially rich in the sanctuary. Wall monument on north side
of chancel to Ambrose Oldys, died 1720, with reference to his father killed by
the 'rebels' (Parliamentarians): a grey marble aedicule with broken segmental
pediment and central tablet flanked by morning cherubs. Three C16 brass tomb
