The north porch is gabled and has a moulded pointed doorway. The south porch

tracery. The south chapel has two 2-light windows to the south and three
to the east. At the east end of the chancel are five 2-light windows.
Interior: four-bay nave arcades have tall pointed arches springing from
alternate round and octagonal columns with capitals. The fifth bay of each
arcade has a compound pier and respond and opens into a transept. The moulded
pointed chancel arch has compound responds. Over the nave is a rafter roof,
with collars and scissor-braces. Two pointed arches open from the transept
into a north chapel, and a further two arches springing from paired columns
open from the chapel into the chancel. The chapel is divided by a two-bay
arcade on an east/west axis. A two-bay arcade divides the south chapel
from the chancel. Chancel ceiling is plastered. The lower part of the
walls is panelled in oak. The chancel contains carved choir stalls. A sand-
stone font is elaborately carved. (VCH, (Staffs) Vol VII, p 236).
