A stone rubble church with ashlars dressing. Mainly C13 with later work. The Church was begun in the warly part of the C13 by Bishop Eustace (1198-1215). It has a wide nave of 7 bays (Transitional) with slender plain piers and captials with scalloped ornamentation. THe clerestory is C15. The fine north doorway is early C13, with orders, columns with shaft riings, stiff-leaf capitals and a pointed arch with chevron ornamentation.
