Church. Early C15 timber framed and weatherboarded tower with a broach spire. (C. A. Hewett ascribes the tower to circa 1425). Nave and chancel remodelled C19 but with surviving C15/C16 roofs. The construction of the tower is of particular interest. The 4 post bell tower is carried on a heavy framed rectangular base with heavy braces on the north and south. There is an original C15 door on the west side, with carved spandrels. The south porch is Cl4-C15.
